Lukas Mezger

Hi, I am Lukas Mezger, a media and IT lawyer and amateur clarinetist from Hamburg, Germany. I've been a Wikipedian since 2005, and most of my editing takes place on German Wikipedia. As a member of Wikimedia Deutschland, I have been serving as a member of the board since 2014.

In the past, I've lived in several places around Germany as well as in Italy and in the United States.

The urgency of the climate crisis is reflected in the Wikimedia 2030 Movement Strategy recommendations, which call on the entire Wikimedia Movement to “align our practices to support the environmental sustainability of our planet”.

A group of Wikimedia afiliates have recently begun implementing this recommendation, commiting themselves to reducing their carbon footprint through a variety of measures, especially around travel, in the Wikimedia Affiliates Environmental Sustainability Covenant.

This session will explore this new initiative, especially how it takes into account the principle of climate justice, meaning that the more privileged must help carry the burden otherwise disproportionately borne by those less privileged and those living in regions prone to the harshest effects of climate change.

The session will close with a call on Wikimedia affiliates from the Arab region to co-sign the Wikimedia Affiliates Environmental Sustainability Covenant.
