Brief note examplesEdit
- Wiki4MediaFreedom edit-a-thon concludes: On November 21, sixteen people from six countries gathered in Belgrade, Serbia for the Wiki4MediaFreedom edit-a-thon (editing workshop). Conceptualized by Wikimedia Serbia and Italy, independent affiliates that work to advance the Wikimedia movement, and Osservatorio Balcani Caucaso Transeuropa, the event brought journalists, media freedom activists, experts, and the Wikipedia community together—”three groups that share the battle for freedom of information along with the need for quality information and a richer and plural information ecosystem,” Rossella Vignola told us. Tangibly, they together created eleven new articles and improved four more, and the group hopes that the connections made will bear additional fruit in the future. More information is available on Meta and on balcanicaucaso.org.
