Re: Public Awareness, Advocacy and Civil Society Engagement - 19-20 March Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Yes, I’m interested because I am working for conserving natural heritage through mass mobilization and community sensitization at local level in the largest state of India, i.e., Rajasthan. As per the Indian Constitutional provision of Article 51A(g), it is my duty to engage in such awareness programs and event.

Warm Regards

Hi Dr. Mehtra,

How great to have your expertise on the Edit-a-thon!

More emails will reach you as the committee rolls out this Edit-a-thon. In the meantime, pease share your recommendations on this event. I hope you’ll tell colleagues.

And would you consider also inviting people who like to translate? It would be great if we could get some of the basic Wikipedia articles translated into many other languages. Maybe even university students in departments of languages and linguistics would be interested in celebrating World Water Day with SuSanA.

I am especially interested that you are working in a very dry area. The WTD theme this year is “Why wastewater? Why waste water?” Two very good questions!

Best wishes,

Carol

Dear Team Leads,

I am interested first because I voluntarily requested to be a member of this group and because I believe that achieving SDG 6 is a worthy course.

Therefore, I see the opportunity of contributing to global development leveraging my experience and expertise.

Looking forward to the day.

Thank you

Re: Take part in edit-a-thon on 19-20 March (and before) to improve Wikipedia for Public Awareness, Advocacy and Civil Society Engagement

I would like to submit from my experiences on the topic:
1. Inclusion of customary and indigenous approach (customs and traditions) of different cultures/ ethnic groups/ nations on the topic;
2. Linking local grass root level team with the regional and global platform with due respect to their customs & traditions on the Wikipedia;
3. Wikipedia app for the desired topic of interest for mass awareness, advocacy and CSO engagements;
4. Networking groups on the Wikipedia where an individual could get in touch with the platforms at every level.
