Looking for feedback, endorsement and partnerships for project working with UNESCO[edit]

Hi all

I’m looking for feedback, endorsement and partnerships for my Wikimedia Foundation PEG grant to be Wikimedian in Residence at UNESCO. I’d very much appreciate if you would have a look, I want to include as many different languages as possible and connect editors in each country with local UNESCO partners.

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:

If you think this is a worthwhile project please click this link and then click the endorse button. If you're working with a chapter and would like to help match volunteers with organisations please message me on my Wikipedia talk page

Many thanks

Wiki Loves Monuments 2015 Canada?[edit]

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)[reply]

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)[reply]
