|About the creator|
Enric (esenabre) is a PhD candidate at the Open University of Catalonia, preparing an online dissertation about the initial growth of Wikipedia and about similar ways of collaborating and organizing between open source communities and Wikipedians.
|The poster makes a brief summary about the history of human compendiums, from the Middle Ages to the current Information Society, in order to show it's relevance in terms of cultural sustainability and awareness about changes. It tries to explain the need of a policy or consensus for giving priority to climate change topics and alternatives, since projects like Wikipedia could play an important role in future cultural and social scenarios. Although in main Wikipedias there are general subfields about sustainability or energy conversion, maybe more little but important changes can be done in order to give the project a new usefulness. The presentation, rather than enumerating these changes, tries to provide an exercise of reflection (by detailing relevant connections to different moments in the history of knowledge).|
