Title: Wiki Loves Local Laws too
Speaker: Jasverenne Ferrer
Abstract: The Wiki Loves Local Laws too is not in itself a photo competition but is more of a Wikisource and WikiCommons type of project that aims to spotlight local laws and ordinances of each community and upload them to Wikipedia for use and reference of the general public especially the citizens in the particular community whether they are based in that area or outside its jurisdiction. Although some local government units such as provinces, cities and municipalities are already digitizing their local laws, it is a fact that not all of them have a working and active website that may house all of their local laws. The project aims to consolidate in one platform the local laws and ordinances across ESEAP member countries or communities. As governments in each locality is unique and have their own set of local laws, it is necessary to codify these essential rulings and provisions in Wikipedia to bridge the gap in the knowledge of local laws. We intend to focus and highlight a seemingly boring but vital field of study to help promote social order and inform citizens of what they are bound to observe and what are the prohibitory acts especially in this age when territories and boundaries are already opened by technology. No matter how we advance as a global village residents, we are still bound by law and order and this project helps ESEAP communities better informed and be more responsible citizens.
