Dear Wikimedia&Education community,
I'm very happy to announce that there will be a Wikimedia&Education
pre-conference event at Wikimania this year!
*Wikimedia&Education: Challenges and opportunities in South Africa and
The Education Pre-Conference at Wikimania will put education programs into
perspective by taking a deep look at the educational challenges that exist
in our host country, South Africa, and how Wikimedia projects are making an
impact. We will engage Wikimedia program leaders, educators, and other
like-minded organizations to share with and learn from each other, helping
to realize the full potential of Wikimedia projects in education.
Program details can be found on the Wikimania portal
