Abstract (up to 100 words)

In this presentation, we will highlight a community engagement initiative “EduWiki Outreach Collaborators”(EWOC), this is a shared learning group that helps the Wikimedia education community in better networking, communications, and capacity building skills. We will also share the role Wikimedia Serbia played in being a part of the first cohort of EWOC. This topic will help Wikimedians in the CEE region to discover the EWOC project, know their benefits and how to work with other Wikimedians to gain experience and learn different skills. It will also help them to improve the first steps of regional networking, to grow the community on the quality side.
