The country page is a national node for WikiEducator related activities in a given country. The country page is a place:

  • to list and coordinate national WikiEducator initiatives;
  • to foster and promote local identity within a global community;
  • for local WikiEducators to meet and identify themselves;
  • for national sub-teams to convene within a given country;


  • There are no prescribed procedures or regulations for organising country or community nodes;
  • There is no limit to the number of national, regional or local community WikiEducator teams that may constitute themselves - as a wiki community we encourage diversity and respect the interests of different groups. National teams and sub-teams may congregate around a wide range of shared objectives by sector, level, interest group etc. Ideally, each national sub-team should link to the relevant page for their country;

Achieving Sustainable Growth

  • We encourage each country or community to develop their own structures and procedures to promote sustainable growth of the WikiEducator community in their respective country;
