Our Wikipedia online camp on climate justice is finished! During the whole week, 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. We are excited about the results: More than 40 Wikipedia articles have been written or improved in Armenian, English, Russian, Italian, Spanish and German and many new items around climate justice have been added to Wikidata. 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 classism in the climate movement.
