A key element of SXNCH is its alignment with Wikipedia as a vehicle for democratising knowledge. In the build up to future symposia, SXNCH will run regular edit-a-thons for developing thematic areas and building dialogue within the overarching agenda. Together with our partners at Wikimedia we are exploring ways of making these inclusive, for example by involving underrepresented groups and editing in multiple languages.

Wikipedia edit-a-thons produce digital content for a Wiki which links to SXNCH themes of the breakout rooms. Workshops are guided by volunteers from Wikimedia (no previous coding experience is needed).
