New WG 3 Co-Lead: Introduction of Astrid Michels (GIZ) - by: amichels http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/56-wg-3-energy-climate-change/20496-new-wg-3-co-lead-introduction-of-astrid-michels-giz#20496 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/56-wg-3-energy-climate-change/20496-new-wg-3-co-lead-introduction-of-astrid-michels-giz#20496
I am pleased to support Stefan Reuter as a Co-Lead for WG 3 on Renewable energies and Climate Change.

Please let me introduce myself briefly: I am currently managing a global programme on climate change mitigation at GIZ, the “Water and wastewater companies for climate mitigation” (WaCCliM). I am an aquatic ecologist by training and have specialized in climate change science during a postdoc at Queen’s University (Canada).

I am delighted to be a co-lead for WG 3. Water and climate change are intrinsically linked. The international community is more and more recognizing the key role that water plays in adaption and mitigation to climate change. As such, SuSanA cannot only support the achievement of SDGs by promoting sanitation systems but also support the implementation of the Paris Agenda and ist water related climate targets.

Looking forward to working with you,

Best,

Astrid]]>

Working Group 3 members: please take part in edit-a-thon on 19-20 March (and before) to improve Wikipedia for energy and climate change - room now open! - by: sreuter http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/56-wg-3-energy-climate-change/20431-working-group-3-members-please-take-part-in-edit-a-thon-on-19-20-march-and-before-to-improve-wikipedia-for-energy-and-climate-change-room-now-open#20431 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/56-wg-3-energy-climate-change/20431-working-group-3-members-please-take-part-in-edit-a-thon-on-19-20-march-and-before-to-improve-wikipedia-for-energy-and-climate-change-room-now-open#20431
As part of the BMGF Phase 3 SuSanA project, which aims to develop SuSanA to become a more effective knowledge management and collaboration platform, we are organising a World Water Day Edit-a-thon on Wikipedia, the world’s 5th most visited website!

It will be on 19-20 March, as a virtual event from your computer. We have already posted about it here on the Form to give you general information about this event: forum.susana.org/component/kunena/213-wo...d-the-clock-together

This post is now specifically addressing the interests of members of Working Group 3 which is on Renewable energies and climate change and for which I am the lead (see www.susana.org/en/working-groups/renewab...rgies-climate-change).

We have suggested Wikipedia pages below which members of this working group may like to edit. However, these are suggestions only. We request the WG to decide which pages you would like to edit. Other existing Wikipedia pages relating to Sanitation can be found here, or suggestions of brand new pages are also welcomed:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProj...rticles_of_relevance

For Working Group 3, I would suggest the following Wikipedia articles would be worth looking at by the WG members:
• Anaerobic digestion en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaerobic_digestion
• Biogas en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biogas
• Biofuel en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biofuel
• Biomass en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biomass
• Dry animal dung fuel en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_animal_dung_fuel
• Decentralised wastewater treatment (potential new article, link DEWATS to there)
• Biogas sanitation (potential new article)

And for all WGs we are suggesting the Wikipedia article on the SDGs:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainable_Development_Goals
as well as World Water Day:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Water_Day


If you are interested in joining this effort to make good quality sanitation information available in one of the most far reaching portals in the world, please, by 6th of March, post in this discussion thread your interest to participate in the event, and give your feedback on which pages your WG should focus on editing.

After 6th of March, we will compile the list of pages this Working Group intends to edit, and provide all interested members with the information required to get started, via this discussion thread. If you are unavailable or away from internet on the 19th/20th March, no problem – you can add your inputs to the Wikipedia pages ahead of the event.

If you have any questions on the above, please do not hesitate to get back to us.

Please register your interest to participate by posting in this thread.

Best wishes,

Stefan Reuter, lead of Working Group 3
(supported by Elisabeth von Muench)


++++++++++++++
As a reminder (more general information will be available here: forum.susana.org/component/kunena/213-wo...d-the-clock-together):

The objectives of the Edit-a-thon are:
1. To have a greater quality and quantity of information on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene available to all users of Wikipedia
2. To give SuSanA members and WGs the chance to share their specialist knowledge into a portal which is accessed by 500 million users a month, leading to likely impact on progress towards the SDG6!

The form of the Edit-a-thon:
An online event for 48 hours from the 19th-20th March when SuSanA members and the general public will engage in a concerted effort to improve the quality of WASH Wikipedia pages.

Venue:
Your own desk but be connected to other amazing Wikipedia editors and SuSanA members by using a virtual workroom via Adobe Connect. The link to the room will be provided in due course.

Date & time:

The room will probably open on Sunday 19 March at 12 noon and stay open for 48 hours until Tuesday 21 March at 12 noon (the times are yet to be confirmed). Just drop in and see who else is there. An experienced Wikipedia editor will be available for you to ask question or if you need help with editing.

As an editor you can help in many different ways, be it writing new content, correcting and improving existing content, adding images, adding references, internal links, external links etc.

More information about online and offline options to get involved and help will be provided in due course.]]>
