The GC Digital Initiatives is hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to celebrate Earth Day and to improve the quality of open access, free resources about environmental sciences and humanities.
Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd and people from all over the world are launching campaigns and promoting awareness about critical environmental issues. Our Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is designed to help create and improve Wikipedia’s environmental sciences and humanities content. As the largest and most popular general reference work on Internet, Wikipedia provides many people with their first contact with scientific information.
During the Edit-a-thon, you will learn how to set up an account to edit content, learn how to create citations, and either begin connecting existing content to reliable sources or adding new content supported by citations.
No previous experience is required. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP here.
