The need to take part in international Wikimedia life more actively has ripened now. Therefore it is necessary to be more organised and collaborative. User group can become the first step in Belarusian Wikimedia branch deployment.

MissionEdit

User group unites active Wikimedians from all Belarusian Wikimedia projects and helps involving other Wikimedians in common deals, as well as developing their social impact through the creation and proliferation of free content, and keeping open principles in knowledge management and in self-government.

AimEdit

  • To widen media presence and public awareness about Belarusian Wikipedia's community activities.
  • To make collaborative projects with other interest groups, social initiatives, NGOs and local communities in Belarus and abroad.
