A lot of great work in the activism and advocacy space is simply not mentioned online, or it is missing some key details. We aim to change this by hosting an Edit-a-thon, where we invite volunteers to work together to update Wikipedia about some key issues. The best part is, you can Work / Volunteer From Home!

Some topics will include:

  • Save The Tree campaigns from around India: eg:Aarey, Bannerghatta
  • #SteelFlyOverBeda
  • The Kodaikanal Mercury Factory
  • Garbage-burning
  • The leaderless movements in India, like Fridays for Future India, Extinction Rebellion India, and There Is No Earth B

We invite volunteers to come join us ensure that great work gets recorded, with citations.

 

Steps Forward

  1. Create an Edit Plan for each topic
  2. Create citations list, including journals and press mentions (from media houses that are listed with the Press Trust of India)
  3. Assign teams, set dates
  4. Act

Please come join us to make the internet a better place!

Do Note: This is not an event to create marketing material for any organisation or individual, including for ourselves. The rules of Wikipedia will strictly be followed.
