Wikiburg means open town.
We believe that civic engagement is a fundamental part of your creative expression as a citizen.
Wikiburg grew out of the Save Domino campaign – a community movement we started to keep Brooklyn’s iconic pre-war sugar refinery from high-rise development. All of a sudden, we were up against a multi-billion dollar machine that didn’t live anywhere, especially not in our neighborhood. Our struggles became the recipe of what is now Wikiburg, with the tools and knowledge we wished we’d had back then.
Our team is not about a grand save-the-world ideology. Instead, our focus is on local empowerment and the belief that from the bottom up, we can make the world come together.
