A two months edit-a-thon about women that are playing a crucial role in climate change

The Climate Action movement is led by women around the world, some very visibly like youth leaders Greta Thunberg and Vanessa Nakate, and women have taken leading roles in shaping public science and policy about the climate crisis, including Paris agreement facilitator Christiana Figueres or IPCC vice chair Carolina Vera. Help us write about these women and make them visible on more Wikipedias. Project page in Italian.
