Welcome to Wikimedia CH

Thank you and happy 2019!

Wikimedia Switzerland would like to thank you for your support throughout the last year.

2018 has been a very busy year and we were able to start many new projects, establish new partnerships with schools, universities, museums, archives and other cultural institutions.

One of the highlights was certainly the first ever German speaking Wikicon in Switzerland, where over 300 Wikipedians from different countries gathered in St. Gallen to discuss future projects and collaborations within Wikipedia.

We wish you all the best for 2019!

Your Wikimedia Team Switzerland
