Abstract (up to 100 words)

Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 globally and the imposed restrictions thereafter, which eventually led to cancellation of all offline Wikimedia-related events, the Macedonian Wikipedia community has started an initiative of holding frequent online events in order to animate people to stay home and edit Wikipedia. The online events consist of editing days, editing weekends and remote adaption of the Wikisketch project.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Participants will learn about the successful story of the Macedonian Wikipedia community to adapt to the new reality amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Do you plan to pre-record a video with a presentation?

No.
