Green wiki is a contemporary/modern and accepting of anything recent green wiki based on pro-environment (Green) and animal sciences, technologies, people available and business and financial/economical ways to adjust you and your life (lives) to a greener, healthier sustainable/long-term future, for yourself and your offspring (generations onwards).
Why Wikia Green?Edit
In light of the climate/weather and global crisis and other ecological/biological challenges increasingly facing us, people are becoming more aware than ever about environmental troubles/woes and taking more actions to lessen their impacts. However, learning about the environment can often be confusing and overwhelming. There are lots of voices talking about the environment -- activists, governments, companies, advisory groups, and non-profits, to name a few -- all of whom have different ways of explaining things and advising people. They also make their points through a variety of different media's such as articles to blogs to films to white papers to position papers. It can be hard to find what you are looking for! To compound things, information can also be contradictory: are biofuels good or bad? To what degree?
How Wikia Green HelpsEdit
Wikia Green strives to become a trusted naturalised centralised place to share our growing and evolving body of knowledge about environmental subjects, topics and issues/problems with people who want to learn/educate and/or inform themselves and live in a more environmental friendly and pro-future sustainable way.
The Wikia Green community/society also believes that the threats to our environment are real and that they require action. However, this wiki also strives to foster a community where respectful debate and informed viewpoints can be heard.
How is Wikia Green Different from Wikipedia and Other Wikimedia Projects?Edit
Wikia Green content differs from that on Wikipeda in three main ways:
- The content is written from a green point of view. (Compare Leonardo Di Caprio to Wikipedia:Leonardo Di Caprio)
- The content is focused on things you can do. (Compare How to reduce your carbon footprint) to (Wikipedia:Carbon emission)
- The content is more accessible and relevant to an average reader (Compare Starting a Compost Pile to Wikipedia:Composting)
