Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
In Estonia we have started a nationwide project Miljon+ to get the Estonian Wikipedia among the Wikipedia versions with over 1 million articles. Therefore, according to objectives of the project, by the end of 2020 there should roughly be as many Estonian articles as there are native speakers. Can this be done?
This project involves various cooperation with universities, museums, companies and other institutions. My talk describes one possible way to build up cooperation with them and I will give an overview about process and outcome of the project.
What will attendees take away from this session?
New ideas for building big projects and starting large scale cooperation.
