Wikimedia projects support team[edit]

  • Organizes the knowledge about heritage element across the Wikimedia projects The data of the UNESCO lists and registers is imported to Wikidata and the work with importing elements from the individual national inventories is starting. It requires both practical actions as well as ethical considerations. The category structures on Wikipedias and Wikimedia Commons need some care and it would be best to do it in a coordinated manner.
  • Supports the Wikimedia community in finding best practices Some Wikipedias make great templates and elements that could be adopted by other Wikipedias. This can be a place to share them. This group can also further ethical sharing practices on Wikimedia projects.
  • Supports newcomer participants in contributing to Wikimedia projects The group can advise project partners on issues relating to copyright on Wikimedia projects.
