Wikipedia para Jóvenes
The idea of Cibervoluntarios with this project is to raise acknowledge among young people about the possibilities of Wikipedia. The project will be structured in two different modules: one in which young people will be taugth about how to look for content inside Wikipedia, and how to do a good use of it. The second one will be related to provide formation on how to become a content producer in Wikipedia. Our intention is to foster digital knowledge among young people and improve their capacities in the use of Wikipedia.

About the idea creator[edit]

Fundación Cibervoluntarios (Cybervolunteers Foundation) is an atypical non-profit organization made up of social entrepreneurs whose vision is to use new technologies as a means for social innovation and citizen empowerment, alleviating this way social gaps i.e. we work to increase the rights, opportunities and capabilities of each person within their environment, through the social use of technological tools and applications within their reach.

To achieve this goal, the Foundation counts with the cybervolunteers. Curious, proactive persons willing to learn, with a passion for sharing and enthusiasm about ICTs, who offer part of their time and knowledge to teach other people the possibilities of the use of technology tools and applications to improve their lives in a simple and useful way. They do it through both online and onsite courses, lectures, workshops, events… etc.

They direct their action to groups of people that may be excluded from information society based on gender, age, professional and social environment, lack of time, knowledge, skills, motivation and/or material or economic resources... and they manage to adapt the use of technological applications to alleviate these social gaps at working, participation or health levels, among others. … A challenge, 15 years of work that received from the hands of the Prince and Princess of Asturias a recognition for “the creation of new forms of participation and social innovation in support of groups at risk of exclusion”, as well as the economic and social recognition of, for being one of 50 entities that are changing the world, the first and currently the only organization recognized with such merit in Spain.
