Activities

[edit]

The Fulfulde Wikimedia user group, focused on the Fulfulde language community, could engage in various activities to support and promote the use of Wikimedia projects in Fulfulde. Here are some potential activities for the Fulfulde Wikimedia user group:

  • Regular meetings (online and in person): the community of this user group will be organizing regular meet-ups for its members in order to share ideas and to find ways to support them to continue editing the Wikimedia projects in areas where they would need help. Such meetings will help the community to work in a more coordinated way and also help to quickly deal with any problems that may exist in the community. At these meetings, the community sets goals and plans various activities.
  • Editing contests and thematic weeks: the group will be organizing editing contests to encourage existing regular editors to keep editing Wikimedia projects and also encourage non-members/users to join.
  • Training Workshops/Editathons: to help new Wikipedians learn editing techniques, to create, translate and improve content in all Wikimedia projects or work on and develop a certain topic which will in return promote the project.
  • Photowalk Trips and Contests: the group will also organize trips and contests to encourage users to upload and document files to commons which will be used in all Wikimedia projects.
  • Cooperation: as Fulfulde Wikimedia UG, it is part of our main goals to cooperate with various organizations (institutions, NGOs & etc.) and government structures in conducting joint projects. The Fulfulde UG thinks cooperating with everyone for the development of Wikimedia projects in Fulfulde is very important.
  • Lectures: at various educational institutes and organizations are an important part of our work, since such events give us the opportunity to familiarize the public with Wikimedia projects and its importance. At such events, we also talk about the importance of free knowledge and its promotion on a free platform under a free license.
  • WikiCamps: are educational camps, the main goal of which is the education of participants through Wikipedia, Wikiquote, Commons and other Wikimedia projects. During WikiCamps young people acquire skills in Wikimedia projects. The main goal of the camp, to attract more young people (and not only) to work in Wikimedia projects.
  • Conference: is annual forum dedicated to the development of Wikimedia projects in Fulfulde, as well as issues related to knowledge creation and dissemination.
