What: This is a public writing challenge to create and improve articles related to human rights, especially human rights topics related to the right to a healthy environment in the languages for Wikipedias or other Wikimedia projects. The winners will receive small prizes to commemorate their participation. The challenge is organized as part of the #WikiForHumanRights campaign from April 15-May 15 2021 run in collaboration with the UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR) and UN Environmental Program.
When: The writing challenge will run from 00:01 on 15th April until 23:59 on 15th May 2021 (GMT). Thursday, 22 April is International Earth Day. There will be events during the course of the campaign (join a local event!), if you are looking for inspiration or need help thinking about topics.
How: You edit articles, and win points based on our point system: you get points while improving articles, with the goal for each participant to gain as many points as possible. We will have special prizes for contributions in non-UN languages.
Who: Everyone can help in any language to collaborate on writing and/or translating the articles related to human rights and the right to a healthy environment. Any Wikipedian with a named account (on any wiki, including the incubator) can participate. To participate you just need to sign up in the Participants section.
