The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and Future Climate for
Africa (FCFA) invite you to participate in an online climate change
edit-a-thon, Wiki4Climate - A week of editing on climate change topics from 24
November - 1 December 2020.
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.
The event has four specific goals:
To enhance climate change content on Wikipedia, particularly related to
the Global South,
To increase awareness on the value of contributing to the platform,
To enhance the confidence and skills of climate change professionals to
edit Wikipedia, and
To build a community of climate change editors, particularly women and
editors from the Global South.

Please share this opportunity with your networks and anyone you know who
may be interested in joining.
We hope to see you there!
