This event is being held as a part of the 3rd edition of the National Youth Conference at IIM Indore, which is focusing on value centric leadership, social entrepreneurship and socio-technological advances (poster) - themes that Wikipedia resonates with. The first session would be the flagship event of the conference (i.e., no parallel sessions) while the other sessions would be parallel sessions with a talk and a symposium happening at other venues. From what we understand, the conference already has over 200 registrations by youth representatives from across the country - 100 from Indore and 100 from elsewhere. Add to this, the 700 students of IIM Indore, of whom, a majority are taking part in the conference. As such, this is a great opportunity for not only bootstrapping the Wikimedia community in Indore but also cultivating Wikimedia thought leaders elsewhere in the country.

Special Instructions

  • Attendees are requested to carry a valid identification proof in order to gain entry into the host institute. All are welcome.
  • There is no entry or registration fee for attending the Wikipedia events. However, attendees interested in having the conference lunch and/or tea may have to pay for the same. (Approx. Rs.100 or $2)
