Wikimedia CH/Call for projects 2015

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

In order to prepare the 2014-2015 Wikimedia CH FDC application, the budget and the associated annual plan, Wikimedia CH is making its third public Call for Projects. Please note that this program plan may not be the definitive Wikimedia CH 2015 program plan, but only the one included in the next FDC proposal. Also note that the inclusion of a project in the Wikimedia CH FDC application do not guarantee the funding of the project.


The Wikimedia community members and like-minded communities are invited to propose two types of inputs, "ideas" and "projects"
