Here are some examples of onsite events that could be organized along the Celtic Knot:

  • Introduction to Wikipedia, Wikidata or any useful project or tool
  • Contributing session, where people edit together and help each other
  • Gathering during the online event to watch sessions together and discuss
  • Discussions about the specific challenges of a language community
  • Social gathering, meetup, open discussion
  • Post-event discussion to reflect on what they learned and exchange highlights
  • Post-event workshop where participants share the skills they learned during the event, to empower their local community
  • Post-event contributing session, to keep improving the content or tools that were started during the conference
