Code for Africa (CfA) is pleased to invite the WMZA community members to
join the campaign it organizes which focuses on addressing issues such as
climate denialism or delayism and related mis/disinformation on Wikipedia.
The campaign under the theme “Bridging the gap: using Wikipedia to fight
climate-denialism” has been launched in four African countries including
South Africa. This campaign, which aims to pioneer new ways for the wider
African Wikipedia community to mobilise and tackle issues such as climate
denialism or delayism and related mis/disinformation, offers to
participants the opportunity to benefit from training sessions (including
editing and fact-checking techniques), as well as a data bundles package.
If you are a contributor to the Wikimedia space, passionate about climate
change in Africa, then this volunteer opportunity is for you.
We highly invite you to join the community to increase verifiable and
credible data about Africa on Wikipedia, and improve documentation on
climate change in South Africa (and in its languages).
You can join the campaign by completing this form

Looking forward to having you with us soon!
