Hello Shani, 

Thank you for this email and awareness of the opportunity. 

I am currently designing a project for the UNESCO Open Education for a Better World project, which directly connects open learning and SDG’s - and have considering where to “host” the Open resources, in a space that can be built upon. Why I didn’t think of Wikipedia earlier is beyond me.

Would you be able to connect with me to see how to “add” the project to Wikipedia? I can propose a possible mini workshop for Sweden( as there are multiple ways to add to the original project idea) and I can see if it is accepted. Is there any possible grant funding for PhD students? This project was also part of my doctoral research and includes Indigenous Storytelling and Perspectives.

So I have two questions 
1) can you or a colleague support me in developing a Wikipedia site for my UNESCO Open Ed for a better world project 

2) I will put in a proposal ( if I can add my project into Wikipedia) and then apply to propose - and is there any funding to support PhD students.

Sorry for all the confusion..

Verena :)

Dear Open Education enthusiasts, 

Just a quick note that submissions for the "Education Space" at Wikimania, the Wikimedia Movement's annual conference, are open till June 9th, so only 3 more days to submit!

Wikimania this year will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, between 14-18 August, 2019. This year's theme is UNESCO's SDGs, and we are looking forward to explore how we can all work together to make knowledge more accessible, reliable and equiable. 

While Wikimania has various "Spaces" (tracks) this year which might apply to people from this community, I'd like to personally encourage you to submit proposal for the Education Space, that I will be curating as part of the Wikipedia & Education User Group, and in collaboration with Educators from around the world. 

Please submit inspiring Open Education stories, initiatives and projects that either directly relate to Wikipedia & its sister project, or has the potential for future collaboration. As the Wikimedia Movement is going through its own strategic process for 2030, we will give some more weight this year for submissions from potential partners. 

Looking forward to seeing you in Stockholm and of course, if you have any questions, I'm here.
