Language-Based Collaboration[edit]

But we can also change this point of view to be collaboration with countries that share the same official language (or its subdivision for some), thus a joint collaboration of particular language version of Wikipedia.

Formalizing ESEAP Hub[edit]

As was discussed the formation of a regional hub to support local communities is something we a community should pursue. To do that we need to adopt a small group of coordinators to be contacts, to facilitate communication, organize meetings, and ensure that ESEAP has reliable consistent channels to the global community.
