What’s a wiki?
Glad you asked. The term ‘wiki’ is derived from a Polynesian word meaning ‘quick.’ This is an apt descriptor since changes can be made immediately by editors. On this page we explain how this all works for those interested in ecotourism, responsible travel, the local tourism movement and sustainable practices. Wikis are possible thanks to the open source software and philosophy pioneered by Wikipedia.
Wikis require active participation, top-down and bottom-up buy-in, commitment from multiple parties and frequently face-to-face training. It’s not enough to be on the same page. It’s critical to face the same screen from time to time.
