This talented group of volunteers from around the world was selected from more than 70 excellent applications. They will work with you over the next six months to organize our annual flagship event, designing a Wikimania that brings our community together and celebrates our movement.
In the coming weeks, the COT will be inviting your ideas and suggestions on what Wikimania 2022 should look like – what would you like to see more of? What should we keep from last year ? What should be different? And of course we’ll need your contribution to the event as volunteers. More to be shared soon and do not hesitate to share your thoughts with us on the Wikimania 2022 discussion page.
Thanks to the new COT and to all Wikimania 2022 volunteers!
Here’s to a great event!
