- Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
- Wikipedia is an international platform with over 500 million monthly readers. Like if we want to have an big image competition, then we just add some banners and that will do it (example). We already have the people on our site, but at the same time we think so little on how could we interact with them and what possibilities may we offer.
- There are various movements to bring people together to build a better world. Imagine, what if they could get even a fraction of that reach that we have... what might they achieve! Have we reached out to them?
- With the sum of all knowledge we could do a lot more. Let's think about it.
- What will attendees take away from this session?
