This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2023.


WikiOASIS: Wiki Island Nations Alliance


Recent Changes, Community Initiatives

Type of session:



The WikiOASIS is a new new group seeking to address common issues faced by Wikimedians in small island developing nations which was launched at Wikimania 2023 in Singapore. The group will look into items like knowledge equity and explore common ground issues like climate change and other subjects disproportionately affecting island nations. The session will also afford the platform for lateral collaboration between small islands not typically considered as developing states as well.

In this panel discussion we will present the ideas behind the group to a North American audience and report on the early outcomes following our launch at Wikimania.
