Abstract (in about 300 words)

Wikipedia belongs to Education. Not only Wikipedia but whole set of it's sister projects can serve in education to solve the issues of digital literacy, information literacy, language learning, collaboration and many more; popularly called 21st Century skills. Wikimedians in Nepal have been running the education program since 2013. But it should not only be a program and activity but should be valuable to academia which is most of the time very stringent and require rigor in their programs. Wikipedia in education is a win-win-win for Academia, society and the Wikimedia community as a whole. We'll work together on Wikipedia Education program design, target setting, executing a successful Wikipedia education program.

This workshop is based on the Workshop devised by Nichole Saad and that I ran in UNESCO TECH conference 2017 in India.
