The Goethe-Institut Kamerun will be hosting an edit-a-thon on Saturday, July 2015 which will focus on “places” and “spaces” in Cameroon. 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 or on the event’s Wikipedia page.
