Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2022

14 October @ 06:00 16 October @ 18:00 UTC

Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2022 is the tenth gathering of the Wikimedia Movement members from Central and Eastern Europe. The idea of having a meeting of these two geographical and cultural regions of Europe is to strengthen the cooperation between Wikimedia Movement groups and organizations, promote the ideas of the Wikimedia Movement and provide an opportunity for knowledge and experience exchange. The meeting is made of user groups and organizations of different size and field of operation, united under the same idea – promotion of free knowledge and resources through Wikimedia Projects and related activities. The history of the Wikimedia CEE Meetings is ten years long, having started in Belgrade in 2012. That was the first meeting of the Central and Eastern Europeans. The following meetings are: Modra (2013), Kiev (2014), Voreu (2015), Dilijan (2016), Warsaw (2017), Lviv (2018) and again Belgrade (2019), and also two online meetings in pandemic. Ohrid was proposed as a host city for the Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2022 by GLAM Macedonia. Initially, the Meeting was scheduled for 2020, however, due to Covid-19 pandemic, the Meeting was rescheduled for 2022.
