Wikimedia Hungary edit

Wikimédia Magyarország (Wikimedia Hungary) is the Hungarian chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, founded in 2008. It shares the mission of the Foundation in aiming to empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally - with a special emphasis on Hungary. Its activities involve lectures, outreach events, projects aiming at improving the quality of Wikimedia sites and advocacy for better copyright legislation in Hungary and the European Union. In accordance with Wikimedia Hungary’s strategy and the decision of Wikimedia Hungary’s AGM in May 2018, Wikimedia Hungary considers its most important task for the next years strengthening the Hungarian Wikimedia community and assisting the community’s self-organizing.
