Wikidata community boothEdit

In the community village, there will be a Wikidata community booth! This place (located on 3rd floor, in front of the escalator) will be the best place for the Wikidata community, and the participants to get more information about Wikidata.

This table will be dedicated to the community. The main coordinator is Lea Lacroix (WMDE) but we need help from everyone to take care of this space, make it friendly and animated, and engage with the participants! To take a shift, you don't need to know everything about Wikidata, you should mostly be able to answer simple questions, be friendly with people, and redirect them to other volunteers or employees if necessary.

If you're willing to take a shift, or organize something special with the other community members, please register below!
