Description: Service Civil International and the international voluntary service (IVS) movement in general turned 100 years last year. In this camp, we want to shed a light to the last century of volunteering by writing Wikipedia articles about SCI, the peace and volunteering movement. This online workcamp is part of the bigger “Wikipedia for Peace” project series, a cooperation between SCI and Wikimedia. We will get to know Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects and through working closely with the SCI Archives, we will get to know the history of the peace movement better.

Type of Work: Doing research for Wikipedia articles online, writing new articles and improving existing ones. The project organizers will prepare a list of articles around people and topics that are related to SCI and that are relevant enough to have articles on Wikipedia. Every day we have ca. 3 hours in the afternoon (Central European Time) where we gather in Zoom. And in the mornings you can work individually or in small groups. You don’t have to have knowledge on Wikipedia already. It is crucial for us that you are motivated to participate throughout the whole project, that you are not missing on any day of the project, that you enjoy writing and that you are interested in the history of SCI and the peace movement

Study Theme: There will be a big emphasis on studying in this camp. We will learn how to write good Wikipedia articles. We will learn about the principles behind Wikimedia projects as well as free licences/open content philosophy in general. We will learn about the history and roots of SCI and the global peace movement. We will get to know more about amazing people that helped to establish international voluntary services and workcamps as a concept – and that contributed to peace – through your own research, through exchange with other participants and through external inputs.

When: from the 1st to the 7th of April 2021
