A short presentation of the current progress of the Wikimedian in Residence at UNESCO project including content released from it’s archives and examples of how Wikimedia and UNESCO can benefit from cooperation to achieve their shared goals.

This will be followed by a workshop exploring possibilities for Wikimedia organisations and individuals collaborating with UNESCO and it's partner organisations, including the opportunities of Wikipedia Zero to reach underserved communities.

The aim of the project is for organisations working in all UNESCO's fields of competence - education, culture, natural, social and human sciences, communication and information - to more easily, frequently and successfully share their knowledge, content and data with the world through Wikimedia projects, to understand the possibilities and impact of doing so, and to encourage other organisations working in these fields to do the same.

1. Train UNESCO and its partner organisations to contribute to Wikimedia projects: The project will create and improve content receiving 100,000,000 views per year on Wikimedia projects, educate 1000 people in over 200 organisations to learn more about Wikimedia projects. This will include 500 newly registered users trained to contribute to Wikimedia projects and 500 articles formally reviewed by experts.

2. Make content from the archives of UNESCO and its partners available on Wikimedia projects: This project will facilitate the upload of 30,000 images, audio files, videos, data and other content to Wikimedia projects from UNESCO archives (24,000 images), UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS)and other sources including 10 organisations changing their content license to be Wikimedia compatible.

3. Create a model and resources to encourage other UN organisations and their partner organisations to engage with Wikimedia: We will create a comprehensive how-to handbook (documentation and a tool chain) which will be an amalgam of existing resources and new resources created by myself and the wider Wikimedia community. This project will act as a model that can be followed by other UN agencies and their partners to open up their content and engage with Wikimedia and the wider open education movement.

4. Disseminate and promote information on the project and its outcomes, open licensing and engaging with Wikimedia: To make information about and produced by the project as widely as possible with the aim of moving further towards making open licensing the standard for scientific, cultural and educational organisations and engagement with Wikimedia common practice.
