Abstract (maximum 500 words)

This workshop/presentation is at par with Ground Zero level activity of Wikipedians. Here Ground Zero comprises of School Students (Class 5th to 10th) from all sections of Society. Here, I would to like to introduce some concerns and solutions through presentation and some activities for the scope of Wikimedia ethics at starting stone.

The concept is coveted to access to out of reach crowd which primarily requires free Knowledge share. I would also like to have some stress on Lower-Middle class schools so we can bring their students in active modes of learning. I would also like to share some vistas on "Need and enthus of ground Zero" from the experiences of my working at ground level with Times Group - Corporate Social Responsibility Dept. I proposed a plan to increase the presence at Ground Level. I plan to start it here in Delhi with the help of Some NGO schools.

Ground Level emptiness has inured a comprehensive plan out. Some headlines are following.

  • Day celebrations at schools
  • Representation of Wikipedia at school functions
  • Introduction of some new creative areas of contributions for wiki-articles
  • Easy and interesting ways of Wiki-sharing

..... Join us for this noble cause
