Sharing knowledge to build rich, sustainable lives.

“I love to see projects that make the world a better place. The process in which they unfold always fills me with wonder and excitement. I enjoy being part of those that are collaborative.”

How We Work

Servicelearning modules

We empower students with the skills to unlock their creativity, capture their journey, and ignite a global sharing revolution. Through dynamic collaboration, we cultivate a passion for research, inviting students to become content creators, documenters, and enthusiastic knowledge-sharers.

Promotion of open content for development

Appropedia is dedicated to developing the potential of Open Know-How – the practice of openly sharing knowledge about manufacturing processes. We strongly believe that Open Know-How has the transformative power to revolutionize aid projects worldwide while significantly reducing development costs. We want to empower communities with the necessary tools and expertise to thrive, ultimately paving the path toward a brighter, more sustainable future

Facilitating knowledge transfer

We believe in making information accessible to all. We want to spread the word about well-documented data that can change the game. One innovation has the potential to be replicated multiple times, offering a more affordable and lower-risk approach.

Community building

Appropedia is your go-to resource for learning and using the tools necessary to impact your community positively. We provide clear guidelines and support to help you navigate content generation and effectively harness our platform’s resources. By documenting and sharing solutions, you become an agent of change, addressing community needs and driving innovation.
