Languages/Edit-a-thon Sustainable Development
This edit-a-thon will focus on sustainable development itself. It will help participants to understand what the Sustainable Development is and why there are some goals. It will also deliver more information to general public reading Wikipedia around the world. As this Wikimania is opened especially those, who speak good English, participants of this editaton may over step the problem in certain languages with the lack of resources and write about the topic using English resources and or translate from English. If we want to highlight the topic of SD and the goals in many languages and many parts of the World this is the way to do so.
This session will address the conference theme — Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals — in the following manner:
In general it covers all topics, because it delivers the informa
tion about them in multiple languages. To follow the idea of SDG means to understand the concept and this is the way how to do so.
At the end of the session, the following will have been achieved:
We will have articles on Sustainable Development in multiple languages.

Each Space at Wikimania 2019 will have specific format requests. The program design prioritises submissions which are future-oriented and directly engage the audience. The format of this submission is a:
The session will work best with these conditions:
- Room: chairs, tables, computers, refreshment drinks, fruit to eat and resources (books). I may taky something from home or ask United Nation office, weather they can provide us some resources in multiple languages.
- Audience: at least one representative of each language willing to write in their language. We may allow also online contributing so we would need to create its project page and negotiate site notice invitation
- Recording: videoconferencing would be perfect - it could support online contributors
- While this submission has not been accepted for the main conference programme, please consider proposing this idea to the Community Village. --Gnom (talk) 15:30, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
