October 9 at 11 CEST (UTC +2), this year’s recipient(s) of the Nobel Peace Prize award will be announced.
In previous years, Wikimedia Norge and volunteers have had the pleasure of holding an editathon at the Nobel Peace Center. During the editathon we have worked on updates about the recipient(s) and other topics related to peace work.
This year, the event will be digital! Join the digital editathon, that will be going on from 10-14 CEST (UTC+2).
You can join us any time in the Telegram group wikinobel: https://t.me/wikinobel and on Google Meet from 10-14 CEST October 9: https://wikitreff.wikimedia.no/. The editathon follows Wikimedia Norges’s Safe Space Policy.
