Booking is required.

The people behind Wikipedia - the Wikimedia Foundation - will be running a  workshop on how Wikipedia can share climate change knowledge. Wikipedia is one of the most effective ways to distribute knowledge, the English pages receive 255 million views per day.

In this workshop, Stuart Prior from Wikimedia UK will cover the gaps in climate knowledge, how Wikipedia can help, and what we can do.

This session is intended to be the start of an ongoing relationship with Wolfson College and Wikipedia to expand access to climate change knowledge, with potential for the Woflson community to live-update the COP26 Wikipedia page as the summit unfolds between Oct 31 - Nov 12.
