5 Education program[edit]

GOAL
The Wikipedia Education Program is one of the most quickly developing projects in our communities. Undoubtedly, engaging students to participate in improving Wikipedia not only helps improve Wikipedia in the first place, but also educates more people about it: the way it works, how to properly use it, how to make it better. In some states, children and elderly people are also participating in Education Programs, so such experience is interesting too. This panel will present many successful models from different countries that can be used to design or reimagine education programmes in the region.
