Edit-athon for new Wikipedia editors
Introduction to Wikidata with Andrew Lih


Given the water shortage currently facing the City of Cape Town during this year's Wikimania we have decided to team up with local water experts to create, expand and improve water sustainability articles on Wikipedia. Water sustainability issues such as the Cape Town water crisis will increasingly impact cities around the world in the future. Join us to help ensure that Wikipedia better covers this increasingly important topic.

Cape Town Tourism, our hosts, will be providing some light catering and finger foods during the event.
