We have organised number of competitions, presentations, speaks (not only in Slovakia), trainings, meetings (including Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2013), some small projects and participated on various Wikimedia conferences. We are collabourating with another Wikimedia organisations and education / open movement organisations, both NGOs and national.

Intentions for Wikimedia SK goes back to 2006 but first strong call for founding appeared in beginning of 2011. After nearly 1 year of meetings, brainstormings and consultations with abroad Wikimedians we created core team of founders which formed a temporal board.
