Diaspora Edits Wikipedia in 2024

The Diaspora Edits Wikipedia initiative is an exciting online editing campaign organized by the Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group. From February 20th to March 20th, 2024, we're diving into a journey to bring together the contribution of the Albanian diaspora on Wikipedia.

Our mission and goals

To empower our community with the skills to edit Wikipedia and highlight the richness of the Albanian heritage, we invite you to join our initiative. Diaspora Edits Wikipedia will:

  • Promote the Albanian subjects on local Wikipedias where our diaspora resides;
  • Increase the quantity and quality of articles on Albanian topics on Wikipedias in foreign languages;
  • Establish a community of Albanian diaspora members who edit Wikipedia.

How to participate

Diaspora Edits Wikipedia includes volunteers of all ages, both experienced editors and young newcomers. Therefore, lack of experience is not a problem for participation. To assist you in your edits and answer your questions, WoALUG will organize several Office Hours online in March, taking place every Wednesday from 10:00-16:00. During the Office Hours, we will discuss how to edit on Wikipedia and ask and answer questions about the campaign.
