Levant-Algeria Cultural Exchange Program 01/11/2019Edit

Levant-Algeria Cultural

Levant-Algeria Cultural Exchange Program is a content exchange program between Wikimedians of Levant and Wikimedia Algeria. It is a part of the content exchange program between Arabic/English speakers and Arabic/French speakers. The idea of this exchange program came from a collaborative discussion in WikiArabia 2019. In this program, wikipedians from both communities will exchange the most important articles from their respective languages and translate them in their own as a token of friendship. This will contribute in reducing the cultural as well as content gap and strengthen the bond between Levantine and Algerian communitirs. Please note that Wikimedians of Levant will translate from English to Arabic and Algerian Wikimedians will translate from Arabic/English to French to express Arabic culture in French language.

Title: Wikipedia Encyclopedia and its Strategic Directions to 2030

The Salon de la Stratégie is a scheduled meeting held at the University of Oran 2 on November 4, 2019.

Agenda :

  • A quick definition of the encyclopedia and a strategic vision of Horizons 2030
  • A discussion on how university students can contribute to the development of Wikipedia.
  • Since the encyclopedia is not recognized, the encyclopedia is alienated
  • Students can add resources to the encyclopedia.
  • A cultural factor in the academic community - anyone who has the information does not agree to share it.
  • Increase communication with the university community
  • Wikipedia of 2006 grew strongly

The aim is for Wikipedia contributors to meet with the academic community to learn more about the encyclopedia and discuss ways of cooperating to develop digital literacy through Wikipedia Encyclopedia.

Universal Code of Conduct March 202Edit

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) is one of the major initiatives on regulation that emerged from the conversations and strategic process of the Wikimedia 2030 community.

Wikimedians from around the world made 10 recommendations to provide direction for the movement towards its 2030 vision. One of these recommendations, "Ensuring Safety and Inclusion," included the creation of a code of conduct, UCoC.

It aims to provide a universal basis for acceptable behaviour for the entire movement, with no tolerance for harassment.

The UCoC is developed in consultation with the Wikimedia community regarding the context, existing local policies, and enforcement and conflict resolution structures.
