Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2022

Wiki-editathon

February 26 is soon here again, and it is time for the yearly UCRF Wikipedia edit-a-thon!

While many references and discussions are […]

It is time for the Union’s yearly collaborative wikipedia edit-a-thon! On 26th February 2020 we will revisit the “sustainable fashion” page on Wikipedia to add and update its content. The page is an entry-point and resource with an average of 400-500 daily visits, so the UCRF hopes to keep the information as reliable as possible. We are happy much of the information and links to resources and peer-reviewed articles and books has been added to […]
