Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales showed his support for Wikimedia UK on Tuesday night at an event in central London.
Speaking at the Tech Hub Campus to a group of journalists, Wikimedians and tech start-ups, Jimmy spoke of the work that the Chapter is doing in areas such as education and culture. He also praised the efforts of all of the volunteers that make these projects possible.
Among the topics Jimmy spoke about was Wikimedia UK’s place within the global movement, our work to increase participation and diversity on Wikimedia projects and our efforts in education such as EduWiki.
Wikimedia UK volunteers and staff were on hand at the event to speak with journalists and local tech businesses about Wikimedia projects and the active role that Wikimedia UK takes within the community.
The event was generously hosted by the Tech Hub Campus, who donated the event space for free. You can watch a video of Jimmy’s talk here on Wikimedia Commons.
