Online Edit-a-thon

CDKN and Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) are inviting you to participate in an online climate change edit-a-thon, Wiki4Climate. The event will run from 24 November to 1 December 2020, and is open to anyone with an interest in climate change, and a desire to improve Wikipedia content or share information.

Further Description / Program

Over the last 12 months there were 98.3 million pageviews of climate change articles on Wikipedia articles (21 October 2019 – 21 October 2020). That’s over 267,000 pageviews per day. Yet many of those in the climate change community – practitioners, researchers, communicators, community organisers – are not maximising this powerful tool to make climate change information more freely available, more robust and more representative of the diversity of local-level impacts and responses.

“We need local knowledge from the ground integrated into Wikipedia. Telling our own stories is only something we can do”, said Rudolph Ampofo at a recent webinar. Rudolph is Partnerships Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa at the Wikimedia Foundation, where he develops partnerships to increase awareness, reach and access to Wikipedia on the continent. In 2015, the Wikimedia Foundation estimated only about 20% of Wikipedia editors were from the Global South. In a 2018 survey as little as 8.8% of contributors were women across 12 language versions of Wikipedia.

Wiki4Climate aims to mobilise a community of climate change professionals (researchers, practitioners and communicators), climate and community organisers, and existing Wikipedia editors and volunteers to edit and update climate change articles on Wikipedia.
