The Goethe-Institut Kamerun (Cameroon) will be hosting an edit-a-thon on Saturday, 25 July 2015 which will focus on “places” and “spaces” in Cameroon.

Event information[edit]

Join us for an edit-a-thon (wikithon) centered on “space” and “place” in Cameroon which will be hosted by the Goethe-Institut Kamerun. Given that Cameroon is a bilingual country, the main languages spoken during the edit-a-thon will be English and French. The articles to be edited and created will be grouped in these two language categories. The most outstanding content-creator will receive a prize. The event will start with a brief presentation on Wikipedia’s various activities in Cameroon, followed by a crash course on creating as well as editing content for Wikipedia before the session proper. Persons wishing to participate should register on the event’s Eventbrite page. Cameroon is made up of spaces and places. Spaces full of unique places, which each have a particular history. Filled with forests, mountains, rivers, villages, town, savannahs, lakes, monuments and shores, this mixture calls for a better description. consist of more than 22.000 named locations in Cameroon. Only few of them have a Wikipedia entry, and these aren’t perfect. The challenge is to create as well as edit content related to place and space in Cameroon.
