About the project
This is an online camp! A pandemic is spreading across the globe. Volunteers and activists are looking for new online spaces to use for peace and social justice. Wikipedia can be one of them! In this Wikipedia for Peace online camp, we will learn how to write Wikipedia articles and will get to know more about inspiring activists, events and organisations fighting for peace and non-violence connected to the organisation Service Civil International (SCI). SCI turned 100 years old last year, so it's time to look at the history of the organisation.
A week of editing Wikipedia together and connecting! Every day we have ca. 3 hours in the afternoon (Central European Time) where we gather in the video platform Zoom. And in the mornings you can work individually or in small groups. You don’t have to have knowledge on Wikipedia already to join the project. We will be a group of 15 participants from around the world. We will meet online via video calls from 1-7 April 2021. Our common language will be English. Apart from editing Wikipedia and learning / discussing about the history of SCI and the peave movement, we will also get to know each other.
This project is organised by Service Civil International Switzerland in cooperation with the SCI Archives and Wikimedia Switzerland.
