Wikipedia Weekend One of the flagship events of our community was Wikipedia Weekend in Tirana organized in November 2014. A two-day event with speakers, talks and workshops from Wikimedia Serbia, Kosovo, The United States and Albania. The purpose of this event was to gather all wikimedians from Albania and Kosovo in the same place. Another goal of the activity was also the follow up with all the participants that were part of the tour that Wikiakademia did before. In the mean time we participated for the first time at Wiki Loves Monuments a worldwide competition in collaboration with FLOSS, and the Ministry of Culture of Albania and Kosovo.

On December 2014 we presented our community at CEE meeting, a Wikimedia event that took place in Kiev. WikiAcademy Kukës was another big event organized by IPKO foundation in collaboration with Open Labs and Wikipedians from Kosovo and Albania. The event was organized in 3 cities of Albania with around 120 pupils participating actively for three months before meeting altogether in a weekend competition with the articles that they edited for 3 months. During the weekend mentors and active users (including us) helped the pupils to finish and publish the articles.
