Appropedia

A friend of mine shared this link with me.

This wiki is an Open Source project where you can share all you know on sustainability. I’m planning on contributing on the sustainable living page from my own experience, feel free to do the same!

Appropedia’s mission is “Sharing knowledge to build rich, sustainable lives.”. They explain this as follows:

Our vision is that all of humanity is able to work together developing and realizing rich, sustainable lives. We build the infrastructure, and help make the connections and populate free content to effect that vision. We provide the living resource library of individuals and organizations working towards a sustainable, healthier future, so that efforts can be spent evolving instead of duplicating past efforts.

Even if you have no intention in contributing to the site, it’s definitely worth a look!
