We’re doing a series of wiki profiles on this blog. We look at the goals of these wiki projects, what has worked, and what hasn’t.
Most are wikis that (like Appropedia) cover sustainability – often a very specific subtopic of sustainability – and they form our green wiki blog series. We hope that better understanding will lead to greater collaboration.
Education is also a focus for Appropedia, so as well, we’ll be looking at wikis and wiki programs dedicated to education, including students who edit Wikipedia and receive credit.
We also have a table of wikis in the fields of sustainability and international development – 113 at last count, with data including size and activity. Sadly, most of them are inactive. Setting up a wiki is easy enough – establishing an active wiki community is a whole different matter.
If you’re part of a wiki team or wiki community that hasn’t been mentioned here, please leave a comment, or contact us at @appropedia or on Facebook.We’d love to learn about your project – or perhaps do an interview.
And if you’re a green or development wiki that is not in the table – click edit and add yourself.
