Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Lots of topics in Bulgarian language are not covered but many people have the knowledge about. They use Wikipedia as readers but not as authors, because they don't know how to publish at Wikipedia and what are the benefits.

What is your solution?[edit]

A free local course about Wikipedia . Main topics will be: Why Wikipedia?; Structure of Wikipedia; Create a profile; Know your potentialities; Publish the first article; Translate; Find co-creators. After the course, once a month there will be a informal meeting face-to-face with the course participants and their friends, where they can share ideas about Wikipedia.

Who will you be doing outreach with?[edit]

Startup Factory, Ruse, Bulgaria; University of Ruse, Ruse, Bulgaria
