This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2023.


365 climate edits


Recent Changes, Community Initiatives, Wild Ideas

Type of session:

Lightning talk


365 climate edits is a community initiative aimed at improving climate-related content on Wikimedia projects. Other than making one climate-related contribution per day anywhere in the Wikimedia ecosystem, there are no firm rules. The basic idea is thus similar to other community initiatives, especially the 100wikidays, yet so far, this does not work as intended. This talk will thus highlight some lessons learned on the way and invite community feedback on promising options to change the settings and diversify the ways to participate, or on alternative mechanisms to encourage activities aimed at improving Wikimedia coverage of climate-related matters on a regular basis.
