Abstract (up to 100 words)

Wiki Loves Earth is an international photo contest held every year since 2014. Multiple CEE communities from Ukraine to Bulgaria have participated in the contest over the years; overall, we’ve gathered over 800,000 photos of protected nature heritage sites from across the world.

In this session, we will:

  • present Wiki Loves Earth and how new communities can join;
  • discuss and ask how the contest can grow and become more useful for participating communities as it enters its tenth year on the international level.
How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Attendees will learn about Wiki Loves Earth and its opportunities for the CEE communities, as well as will be able to contribute to the discussion about the project's development.
