Users Group About



  • Mostaganem, Algeria



Promote and raise awareness in Algeria of the many different projects of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Roles the UG would play

  • Promotion: Promotion of Wikimedia projects and Free content in general. To encourage the use of Wikimedia resources in education (at cultural centres, associations and Universities)
  • Recruitment: To recruit contributors at Wikimedia projects. This may involve some presentations and workshops on the use of Mediawiki interface.
  • Social: Organization of meetings, excursions to discover collaborative work and volunteering for everyone to enjoy the open knowledge
  • Research: With a local User Group, research should be easier. The User Group can work together to gather information on a range of topics not currently covered to enlarge and enrich the Algerian content.
