taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, where the organisers are giving
this Wikimania an unique flavor—an explicit theme based in African
philosophy: “Bridging knowledge gaps, the ubuntu way forward.”Read more
about this theme, why it was chosen, what it means for the conference
program, at the Wikimedia blog
the conference program, this theme will be tightly held, but loosely
defined - in order to encourage a diverse range of responses to the theme.
It is our hope that this change will give us the opportunity to further our
goal of creating the “sum of human knowledge”, by encouraging greater
diversity and inclusion in who participates, and what we discuss, at
Wikimania.To learn more, and to make a proposal for Wikimania Cape Town

In the year 2016, the Wikimediq UG Nigeria started the initiative to
establish Wikimedia Fan Club in all the major tertiary institutions in
Nigeria to deepen the understanding of wikipedia among Nigerian students .
We are glad to inform you that University of Ilorin from North Central of
