Wikipedia workshop 2018

Interested new Wikipedians spent a day writing articles on the history of technology, industrial history and monastic history.

Wikipedia Writers' Workshop at the Iron Library, 23 June 2018

As part of the "100 years of GF at Klostergut Paradies" anniversary celebrations, the Iron Library and Corporate Archives of Georg Fischer AG cordially invited all interested people to an open Wikipedia workshop. The workshop was held at the Iron Library on June 23 2018.

Under the guidance of the Community Manager of Wikimedia Switzerland, the participants learned about active participation in the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia. There were several introductions to working with Wikipedia throughout the day.

The aim was to create new articles or supplement existing articles on the history of the Paradies Monastery and the industrial history of GF, but individual topics and ideas were also welcome. The Corporate Archives and the Iron Library provided suggested topics, literature, infrastructure and catering.
