Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects are the world’s largest digital volunteer effort. How do people from all over the world manage to pull in the same direction? That’s the topic at our seminar on Saturday 4 February. Join us!

The Norwegian non-profit organisation Wikimedia Norge is part of the Wikimedia movement. Every month hundreds of thousands from all over the world contribute to free knowledge. Volunteers are the main element in the projects hosted by The Wikimedia Foundation. Please join us at Deichman Bjørvika in Oslo on Saturday 4 February and learn about how this movement works.



Welcome! By Chair of the Board Marie Nicolaisen and Executive Director Elisabeth Carrera.
