This wiki operates as a knowledge commons that invites and welcomes co-creation from all those interested in community-led action on climate change and sustainability.

Content is freely available to browse and read. If you want to contribute to developing content, you'll need to get in touch to request an account.

Creating an account implies that you support the aims, values and principles listed in our community agreements.

You can contribute at different levels:

Engaged user
You can provide feedback on specific wiki pages via the 'talk page' accessed through the 'Discussion' tab near the top left of each page. We request that you follow the formatting conventions in the Mediawiki user guide, which ensures that discussions are clear and easy to follow.
Content editor
If you'd like to help improve existing content and add new content you'll need to follow our editorial guidelines. If you aren't already familiar with MediaWiki, you'll find the help pages on editing existing pages and creating new pages useful.
Content manager
If you want to contribute to coordinating and managing content organisation and development in any specific subject area, you can join (or initiate) the circle of content managers for that topic. In addition to a good existing knowledge of and commitment to your chosen subject/s, you'll need to be familiar with the conceptual background behind content organisation and understand how we use categories for organisation of content. If you'd like to get involved at this level, please contact the site curators.
Site curator
Site curators take overall responsibility for curation of the site, including its strategic orientation, organisation and management of content, facilitation of the user community and monitoring and updating community agreements. Involvement at this level is usually associated with participation in a relevant project involving ECOLISE and/or member and partner organisations also involved in the Communities for Future programme.
