The aim of this project is to create a collaborative tool, a wiki, which can be used together by professors, researchers, administrative employees and students of any of the Universities who are committed to experimentation on Sustainable Development. Sustainable Development is growing up thanks to different researchers and conscientious people who start careers committed to social and environment aspects by their own. If these kind of persons contribute worldwide with their best to this wiki, it will be very advantageous for everyone. Each of them can see the work of other developers and can contribute with their own investigations, simultaneous helping and getting help from other participants of the wiki. Returning to the wiki, it is important not only to connect people but to collect, exhibit, permit voting and selection of the best entries exposed in the database of the wiki. It is a collaborative web. More precisely, it is an open website to visit and to collect information but not to contribute on it. People who are interested in participating have to create an account and, from this moment, they can contribute with new entries, modify existing ones or participate in surveys about the best one study of the year. The most important reason to force user identification is to avoid any harm to the web. Each change can be controlled and reverted, if necessary, by the responsible of the wiki. This operation will be explained with more details during the project. During this exposition all the contents of this website will be detailed, and also the choice and use of the software that was selected to create it. Finally, after working with the project, both the improvements that it will need, and the final solution to the detected problems will be explained. Of course this project can continue with other students, and many possible improvements to the original page are outlined and prepared.
