Wikipedia for peace: climate justice

Action for Peace #57

What happened?

The workcamp “Wikipedia for Peace: Climate Justice” was an online camp, during which the participants got a chance to learn how to write Wikipedia articles and got to know more about inspiring activists and organizations related to climate justice and the fight against the climate crisis.

16 participants from 9 countries and 3 continents edited Wikipedia to make climate activists, climate organisations and terms related to climate change more visible on the internet.

SCI Switzerland is excited about the results: More than 40 Wikipedia articles have been written or improved in Armenian, Malay, English, Russian, Italian, Spanish and German. Apart from editing, the participants also spent the week getting to know each other better and discussing climate justice from a global perspective.

In one workshop, they had lively discussions about how the current pandemic is related to the climate crisis, and in another workshop they discussed about classism in the climate movement.
