Can I write entries, too?

In order to safeguard a coherent style and profound quality of Wiki entries, the Wiki is not open source. However, we are happy for any feedback on individual entries or the functionality of the website as well as questions that are not yet answered in the FAQ. If you want to contact us, please write an e-mail to sustainabilitywikifeedback [at] gmail [dot] com.
Should I create an account?
You can create an account on the top right of the page, but there are (yet) no advantages to this. Currently, no plans exist to implement any member-only features, so you do not need become a registered user.
Are there more entries coming up?
