Workshop Wikimedia Movement and writing for Wikipedia
The global network Wikipedia offers the possibility to make knowledge accessible for everyone. The Wikimedia movement, or simply Wikimedia, is the global community of contributors to Wikimedia Foundation projects. The movement was created around Wikipedia's community, and has since expanded to the other Wikimedia projects, including the commons projects Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata, and volunteer software developers contributing to MediaWiki.
