I have been a Wikipedian and Wikimedian since 2012. And a volunteer at Wikimedia Ghana User Group since. Representing at BarCamps to community events and creating awareness about shared knowledge.
During Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa 2018 (#FIFAfrica) which took place in Accra, Ghana and brought together policy makers to enthusiasts together. Justice and I represented our usergroup by leading a session on Wikipedia and Wikimedia.
Our session focused on guiding and educating users of the world’s largest Encyclopedia made by volunteers. We had 3 presentations and and Q&As
- Part I – Wikipedia Background & Editorial Principles
- Part II – Wikipedia Governance
- Part III – Communities around Wikipedia
The session was very interactive responding to questions from participants. We we’re thrillied to also have Dorothy K. Gordon Ghanaian technology activist and development specialist participate in our session.
