June 2021 – What you see here is a concept version of LocalClimate.org. The tech challenge is that LocalClimate .org must be a big capable wiki for it to work. The site needs a great wiki developer to get the site set up on a MediaWiki platform. For free.
Here’s why. Thousands of cities and towns will have a variety of climate-topic wiki pages on LocalClimate .org, written and discovered by local residents (and everybody). One big user group will be students grades 9 thru grad school. Students can choose to use the LocalClimate .org wiki as a resource, or to create multimedia content.
🤓 The big friendly goal of this wiki is to get many millions more people interested and involved in their local energy transition.
Please Help. Developing a wiki is beyond this right-brained founder’s current technical ability.* Who’ll wikify LocalClimate .org for free, for now? Can someone donate a team member for this special project? Or have climate-concerned Wikipedia Writers take a hack at it? Because its about the future of life on this world. 🖐🏼 steven@localclimate .org
* Getting a big wiki up and functioning will be a steep learning curve for this site’s currently (June 2021) solo creator. I wanted to try tho. I downloaded MediaWiki, got on SiteGround, fiddled with the perfectly aesthetic control panels and watched a video on getting started making a true Wiki site. I immediately realized I needed professional help getting this site up and functional on a robust MediaWiki platform for universal use.
