About the event:

Wikipedia is the world’s largest encyclopaedia.

Did you know that you can edit Wikipedia?

If you’d like to give it a try, join Abd Alsattar Ardati (and lots of other newbies) in finding out where your knowledge might improve Wikipedia and make it a better place for everyone.

We will take you through the process step by step and will be available to answer any questions you may have.

Speak/read more than one language?

Even better!

This event is hosted by the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Network (IDEA Network) in Open Knowledge, based at the University of St Andrews.
