The Wiki Club
"Wikipedia is the fifth most visited website in the world and the first port of call for those of us in search of information about a famous person or historical event. But did you know that only 17% of Wikipedia bio's were about women? It's a woefully inaccurate reflection of women's achievements - and it has to change"
- Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

Most of us never edited Wikipedia before so we will take you through all the steps. You don’t need experience, nor knowledge on the theme.
- What will you do?
You will be able to help in a few different ways:
- Write new articles
- Help with research
- Fact-check existing articles
- Add citations or content to existing articles
18h30 - 19h00: Introduction to Wikipedia
19h00 - 20h30 : Creating new articles

You will need to come with your own laptop.
So, See you here?
