I'm working on the Connected Open Heritage
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Connected_Open_Heritage> project which
aims to improve and create knowledge about the built cultural heritage
especially built heritage in danger of several countries around the world.
The project is a collaboration between Wikimedia Sweden, Wikimedia Italia,
UNESCO and Cultural Heritage without Borders.
The aims of the project are:
- Creating a worldwide list of built heritage registers
- Adding national registers of built heritage to Wikidata (among other
things this will help people to run Wiki Loves Monuments more easily by
preparing the list of sites for you).
- Adding images from partner organisations to Commons
We would very much like people from all over the world to be involved, you
can take part by:
1. Adding information to countries to the List of Heritage Registers
2. Adding information about potential partner organisations who may have
images of built heritage in our shortlist of countries
3. Adding information about built cultural heritage in the countries on our
4. Designing our logo
(open until Sunday) and support existing logo designs (open until the 11th
For reference these are the African countries on our shortlist:
- South Africa
Thanks very much
