In this session, we will present two Edu Wiki Camps held throughout Serbia, which resulted in many new community members, Wiki ambassadors and WMRS Board members. Through various group activities, participants received knowledge about advocacy, involvement in wiki programs, wiki ambassadorship and cooperation with various edu institutions.
Attendees will learn how to implement this project in their chapter/user groups, because it is a simple, yet inventive way to find new volunteers and motivate the existing ones.
