Proposed participation edit

As i am working a lot of sister project of wikimedia like wikipedia,Commons i personally believe that we have to work for spreading wiki project to the common people like student or youth. So in this Conference in srilanka probably 15-20 Countries people will get together so it will be a grate platform for arranging a workshop where i can get them some knowledge about wikimedia projects. In this conference we have 3-4 days official program so i will take an hour workshop. So it will be grateful for WMF to have a this kind of workshop among the correspondent of global youth.

Goal and expected impact edit

As a result of my workshop, everyone in the audience will get a basic idea of Wikimedia projects like how it works, about its goal, whats the basic thing there that the WMF done for the benefit for world. There will be a gathering of 50-60 Youth leader of the world so i think it will be a gather of WMF program also as The Youth Leader of the conference are all open minded and love to conceive new innovation and new things for better worlds they will love to know the things about Wikipedia and commons. Beside this i think Wikimedia will get 20+ Contributor from this conference so it will be very satisfactory that WMF will get Some open minded active contributor who will lead the WMF next as they are selected globally for this conerence. As i will lead them as a experienced wikipedian and guide them about their basic knowledge of wikipedia. Then there will be a gathering of different countries different culture people so there will be a sharing of culture and tradition between them and this all things can surely effect on WMF project.
