The Young Members committee have been encouraging young IGS members to enhance geosynthetic-related Wik-ipedia pages and improve the accuracy of information available.
Since the last newsletter there have been several significant contributions from young members, including the creation of a new page by Sarper Demirdogen from the University of South Florida, summarising the work of the great Jean-Pierre Giroud. You can visit his page at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Pierre_Giroud.
The committee greatly appreciates the efforts so far, but they’d like to encourage further contributions. Whether or not you seek recognition for your work, you can make the committee aware by recording your Wikipedia user name on the below form:
