</div>'''Appropedia''' is the site for collaborative solutions in [[sustainability]], [[poverty]] reduction and [[international development]] through the use of sound [[principles]] and [[appropriate technology]] and the sharing of wisdom and [[project]] information. It is a [[wikipedia:wiki|wiki]], a type of website which allows anyone to add, remove, or edit content. Registration is encouraged but not required for contributors.
Appropedia has been described as an "[[appropriate technology wiki]]," but it is much broader than that - it is a [[green wiki]], and a wiki for all matters of [[international development]] and [[aid]].  But most importantly, Appropedia is an open site for stakeholders to come together to find, create and improve scalable and adaptable solutions.

Rachel Carson
The human race is challenged more than ever before to demonstrate our mastery, not over nature but of ourselves.

Service learning as a teaching method combines community service with academic instruction that focuses on critical, reflective thinking and civic responsibility. Service learning programs involve students in organized community service that addresses local and global needs, while developing their academic skills, sense of civic responsibility, and commitment to the community. Internships offer ways individuals can learn from valuable work experiences while also contributing to the host's mission.

Service learning using Appropedia helps to create an essential knowledge base for the world via learning experiences for individuals and classes. The Appropedia Foundation and the Appropedia community work with universities via service learning courses, as well as service learning programs to create these opportunities. Appropedia internships also offer opportunities for service learning.
