Gurene Wikimedia Community launches ‘Gurene Wiki Youth Month’

The Gurene Wikimedia Community has launched the ‘Gurene Wiki Youth Month’ in commemoration of International Youth Day.

The Gurene Wiki Youth Month will celebrate community members who are contributing to the goal of digitizing the Gurene language and culture on Wikipedia and its sister projects.

These individuals include researchers, language translators, students, community groups, lecturers, software developers, etc. The month-long activities include an editing competition, training sessions, technical support, and awards, among others.

This year’s IYD theme Intergenerational Solidarity: “Creating a World for All Ages” will provide an opportunity to explore oral tradition which is largely carried by the older generation and digitize the language on Wikipedia and its sister projects.
