I would like to know if you would be interested in working with me to match UNESCO staff and it’s partner organisations with skilled volunteers. This would include running in person training sessions and mentoring new users from these organisations who will often be experts in their field.
I ran a pilot project that resulted in the images found in the Wikimedia Commons category Images from the archive of UNESCO, here are a few examples relevant to Wikipedia:
The Soda volcano, Oromia, Ethiopia.
Rubble of the cathedral after the earthquake that hit the Capital Port au Prince just before 5 pm on 12 January 2010.
Young monk, wearing a special costume, July-August 1991, Sikkim, India.
Sabha, 6, getting ready to walk to school from her house on the borders eastern Gaza strip, where she and her family are still living in tents.
Not far from Mohenjo-Daro (or Mohenjodaro) - These Mohana fishermen/hunters use lures from real birds to catch more birds. They will either eat them or sell them. Mohenjodaro, Pakistan.
Priest of rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela, a high place of Ethiopian Christianity, still today a place of pilmigrage and devotion.

Are we participating in the 2015 Wiki Loves Monuments event? I don't see that Canada has registered yet... It would be a shame if we didn't. Oaktree b (talk) 23:54, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, very disappointing, even more so than the abortive entry in WLE last year. Were the previous years of participation considered a failure in some way? If the problem is lack of volunteers, I haven’t noticed any attempts to recruit more.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 23:53, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
