Interested in public education? The Wikipedia article about “water pollution” gets around 6000 views per day. Is the content of that article to your satisfaction? Or could it be improved?

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) could use your help in upgrading information all those curious readers will find when they go to Wikipedia around 22 March 2018. They have selected ten Wikipedia articles they want to focus on this month. Would you like to find out which ten topics they have chosen? Then click here.

You can help make articles on Wikipedia easier to understand, more comprehensive and up to date. You can involve yourself by joining the recently launched LinkedIn group: A group of like-minded people who want to improve the content of Wikipedia articles that deal with sanitation and water topics. You can also go directly to the Meetup Page on Wikipedia to find out how to get started.

Raising knowledge and awareness about sanitation topics is one step toward accomplishing Sustainable Development Goal Number 6: water and sanitation for all. Becoming part of this Wikipedia editing drive will help particularly the early-career people in the WASH sector to enlarge their network and “get their name out there”! So join the collaborative editing fun, whether you are a novice or an expert.
