What experiements have you run to get people interacting more when organizing on topics like Climate Change?

So I tried something on English Wikipedia to improve participation in the Climate Change WikiProject talk page: created both an impact update about the content, and asked folks to share their stories about participation in the WikiProject: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Climate_change#Pageviews_significantly_increasing_from_last_year_--_people_are_paying_attention . This seemed to work pretty well, got a bunch of folks who had previously not been involved in talk page discussions, on the page share what they are up to, and how they are thinking about it.

What approaches have you been taking for getting people engaged on the projects? Are they working?

The conversation that Alex started is great. It was a simple but superb way to develop the group’s sense of community.
