You should conclude your Wiki paper with a ‘One Minute Message’ or ‘Elevator Message’ addressed to a relevant senior government or non-government policy advisor.

Please use the Wikipedia reference style. Provide a citation for every sentence, statement, thought, or bit of data not your own, giving the author, year, AND page. For dictionary references for English-language terms, I strongly recommend you use the Oxford English Dictionary. You can reference foreign-language sources but please also provide translations into English.
