2019:Environmental sustainability

From Wikimania

Short description

[edit | edit source]
This space will look at the connections between Free Knowledge and environmental sustainability: How can the Wikimedia Movement play a role in the struggle towards a more environmentally sustainable future through providing resources, partnerships, and leading by example?


[edit | edit source]
A possible starting point: The Wikimedia Sustainability Initiative
Students giving up their right to education to demand climate action: The #FridaysForFuture movement.

Background should be covered with interactive images so that the partial special challenged are able to interact with the images.

Delay: what's going on?

[edit source]

@Joy Agyepong and Gnom: I've noticed the program was suposed to be released at July 1, but submissions still display "This is an Open submission for Wikimania 2019 that has not yet been reviewed.". What's going on? Was the timeline changed but the page wasn't updated? J. N. Squire (talk) 16:06, 3 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Hi J. N. Squire, it's been tough to find time for this in between our day jobs and our remaining Wikimedia volunteer responsibilities. Thank you for your patience. If you have any specific questions, please let us know. --Gnom (talk) 19:27, 3 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

List of presentations given?

[edit source]

Shouldn't this page now be updated to show the list of presentations given, ideally with links to the presentations and videos (like they did for some of the other conference spaces like the one on "Research")? Just in way of better archiving and so that things can be found again in future. EMsmile (talk) 13:50, 24 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]
