Interwiki collaboration month is a proposal originating from the Sustainable Community Action wiki to promote and encourage interwiki collaboration on any aspect of sustainability or sustainable development.

Contents

[edit] When?

  • June, each year, starting in 2009

Plenty of time to prepare, fits in with green festivals (summer months, northern hemisphere - see note below), might fit in well with one of proposed topics for 2009

[edit] What?

The idea is to collaborate on expanding a common pool knowledge from which everyone can share on one or a few main topics each year

  • June 2009 proposal - something like 'Low carbon futures' or 'How can we reduce our carbon footprint' - which might fit in well with the lead up to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, COP-15 (November 2009)

[edit] Why?

  • Collaboration is a good thing!
  • if a whole range of wiki can be seen to be working together this may be more impressive to potential users, and so used in promotion of individual wiki to wider audiences
  • low cost - only commitment is to collaborate on at least one topic on at least one wiki (preferably including at least one different to that which normally contribute to) during the month

[edit] Alternative titles

  • Peoples' Sustainability Symposium

[edit] Who?

Original proposal posted on the first 5 wikis, but of course the list can be added to:

Responses: please add your response, or see others on the SCA page

(not intended to be a northern hemisphere / developed world only thing, but specifically to try and include or be open to majority world / developing world also)
