Emphasis will be on the training of professors to work on Wikimedia projects through a one-day seminar for teachers.

In addition to working on creating free content, the community will also work to educate the public on topics related to the Wikimedia movement and free knowledge. The main goal of these activities is to motivate and encourage participants to join the community and contribute to the Wikimedia movement through their engagement.

Goals:

  • partner relations establishment with new educational institutions;
  • further improving relations with institutions with which community already had cooperation;
  • inclusion of professors with work on Wikimedia projects;

GLAM in Republika Srpska.

Wiki Ambassador in the Republic Srpska is a project that involves staying of the delegation of Wiki Ambassadors - Wikimedia and Wikipedia members at the appropriate GLAM institution. The aim of the project is to collect relevant data and materials that are difficult to reach due to a lack of literature and to release them through Wikimedia projects.

The project was launched in 2016 and since then its sustainability has been confirmed as well as the need for re-organization. In addition to releasing material valuable to Wikimedia projects, Wiki Ambassadors also train employees to use Wikimedia projects in their work. Within the specified timeframe, cooperation will be established with one GLAM institution for which one of the Wiki Ambassador from the Wikimedia Community of Republic of Srpska will be hired.

During the project, realization Engaged Wiki ambassador will realize the 8 day-long working visits to the GLAM institution. On that occasion, they will train employees to work on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia and QRPedia. During the planned visits, in parallel with the training of employees, work will be done to create content on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons related to the poorly represented topic on Wikipedia - Orthodox temples located in the territory of Republika Srpska. The basis for the selection of topics is the research conducted by the Wikimedia community of the Republic of Srpska. Only about 40% of the content was found to be processed. The rest of the content that makes up a unique list is not covered by the lack of literature that was lost during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s. The organizing team has taken some steps to bridge this gap - Metropolitanates have been contacted and part of the lists have already been provided to the community. The goal is to complete the list and to create articles based on the available literature obtained by churches and monasteries. The long-term goal is to complete the base through various activities and to find in it all Orthodox temples located on the territory of the Republic of Srpska.

During the indicated period, a two-day local conference will be held, bringing together at least 30 participants. The conference will bring together Wikimedia and Wikipedia members who are part of the Wikimedia community of the Republic of Srpska and those who are not, but have participated in some activities and supported the work of the community. The purpose of the conference is to motivate participants to work more actively and give them a sense of belonging to the community.

Also, on the sidelines of the conference, live meetings will be held with members of the Management Board and members of the organizational team. Although meetings of this type are regularly held online, the importance of live meetings for the purpose of strengthening links among members, for open discussions, the presentation of ideas and the planning of future projects is of paramount importance.

Prijevor.

In the period from August 1 to September 30, 2020, a competition in collecting photographs of protected natural and immovable cultural and historical assets of the Republic of Srpska (WLE + WLM) was held. In an effort to maintain continuity in the work and for the Community, despite the collapse caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, to offer various contents to the public, editors, and members, it was decided that the competition be held and adapted to the emergency situation. All activities were realized online. The planned photo tours and the ceremony of announcing the winner were missed due to the security situation.

The competition lasted for two months, and during that time, 666 photographs of protected natural and immovable cultural and historical assets of the Republic of Srpska were uploaded. 47 photographers took part in the competition. This year's competition was marked by an increase in the number of participants - professional photographers, as well as an increase in the number of protected areas and monuments whose photos have not been available on Wikimedia projects so far.

The Wikimedia Community of the Republic of Srpska, as before, provided all the necessary technical support necessary for the smooth implementation of the competition - from the preparatory to the final phase of the project. In addition to the above, the project has attracted a lot of public attention and, thanks to good cooperation with the media, has taken a satisfactory position in the media space. In addition, all tourist organizations in the country have on several occasions, sharing information about the competition, invited the public to take part in the photo competition Trace of Soul 2020.

An expert jury composed of the most eminent experts from relevant fields selected the 20 most beautiful photos of the photo competition Trace of Soul 2020. The photos were divided into two categories - Natural and Stationary Cultural Heritage.

World War II… 75 Years After

WWII.
Barnstar World War II… 75 Years After.

The worsening of the epidemiological situation caused changes in the planned activities. The community was faced with great challenges on how to continue continuity in work and to adapt to numerous limitations. In July, the community proposed the project named World War II… 75 Years After. The project is all about 75 years since the end of the deadliest episodes in human history. Over 60 countries took part in the 6-years long military conflict. World War II took over 50.000.000 lives, and more than 35.000.000 were wounded. Many of them lost their lives after the war. Hundreds of battles were fought on dozens of fronts. Thousands of buildings were demolished and hundreds of new ones built. Despite that, life was renewed and continued after this catastrophe of global proportions. New ideas, new movements - new history were born. We have proposed an initiative to the global community to get involved and to use the month of September for marking the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War with a series of Edit-a-Thons and competitions dedicated to this topic. This project was not originally planned in our Annual play. It was the ad-hoc initiative, with no spent, and the results are great! The initiative was accepted by GLAM Macedonia, Wikimedia Armenia, Wikimedia Community User Group Greece, Wikimedians of Bashkortostan User Group, Wikimedians of the Republic of Srpska, Wikipedia Education program at the Hashemite University, and Women in Red. The results of the initiative are: 7 local organizers (chapters, user groups, etc..), 519 new articles, 91 participants, 477 photos of monuments dedicated to the victims of World War II to Wikimedia Commons, and two GLAM collaborations in which one book of 224 pages was digitized, 18 photographs were released and one lecture was held to the staff.

Globally, we have provided logistics and support to interested organizers. In addition to the initiative itself, we launched a page dedicated to the project and created templates on Meta. Also, we proposed several models of project implementation and offered logistical support. We also monitored the course of project implementation and summarized the results. In addition to regular communication on the mailing list, we also wrote blog posts.

At the local level, we organized several activities with the limits due to the pandemic. Activities were directed in three directions: Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, GLAMs, and internal things. On Serbian Wikipedia, we launched the edit-a-thon (including all preparations, monitoring, and reporting). We managed to organize cooperation with two GLAM institutions. Our GLAM coordinator organized online lectures to the staff of the National and University Library of the Republic of Srpska and the Museum of Old Herzegovina. Employees are informed of the concept of our projects and Wikimedia projects. Thanks to these actions, we achieved two symbolic cooperation and agreed to continue cooperation in future projects. From the Museum of Old Herzegovina, we got 28 photos of WWII and with the National and University Library of the Republic of Srpska, we worked on the digitization of the book and its uploading on Commons. Last but not least, our third area of activity was reporting, writing community blog posts, communicating with the community, analyzing data, monitoring activities, and so on.
