Wikipedia for Peace Online: A Centenary of Peace Activism

20-22 June 2020

About the project[edit]

Together with other movements for International Voluntary Service, Service Civil International is celebrating its centenary this year. We want to look at these 100 years of peace activism, within SCI and elsewhere - what movements evolved, who were/are the activists? Wikipedia has the potential to democratise knowledge - to make it accessible to everybody who has internet access, not just those who were in the lucky position to be able to pursue university studies. We in SCI see this democratisation of knowledge as a contribution towards global justice, and we see a lot of similarities in Wikipedia culture and SCI culture, we share quite a few values and dreams of how the world should be. That is why we are joining efforts and motivation to edit Wikipedia together with volunteers from Wikimedia Poland. In this extraordinary situation due to the pandemic, we want to think about ways to continue workcamps and activism. Writing and editing Wikipedia articles, one also needs the skills to do research, to verify information, and distinguish trustworthy sources from the others, skills that get more and more important in general life, if we think of the recent surge in fake news.

What is Service Civil International?[edit]

Service Civil International (SCI) is a peace organisation—and one of the largest non-profit networks of volunteer organisations. The first SCI workcamp was organised in 1920, close to Verdun, France, by the Swiss pacifist Pierre Cérésole. Through workcamps, SCI wants to increase international understanding; to raise awareness of global inequalities and people with fewer social opportunities; and to promote sustainability and responsible use of resources. In SCI workcamps, people from different countries and sociocultural backgrounds work together for two to four weeks to benefit a local non-profit initiative. We are still looking for participants!
