CEE Youth Group — an initiative of the CEE Hub to informally connect young people (younger than 26 years old) from the Central and Eastern Europe across the region to support capacity building in this area. It is organised by CEE Hub coordinator Barbara Klen and SC member Klára Joklová.
The group was established in May 2023. We want to create a space for collaboration and sharing among young Wikimedians. For this reason, the Catch Up meeting held by CEE Hub and Wikimedia Foundation's Movement Communications regional specialist Natalia Szafran-Kozakowska on 16th May 2023 was also focused on young people in the region.
CEE Youth Group initiative is planned to have bi-monthly meetings, starting from August 2023, focusing on creating a new opportunities for young editors and Wikimedia members from the region.
Possible ideas/goals open for discussion will be:
