Hola everyone! Sorry in advance for cross-posting. As many of you are aware, last April 5th the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation announced the launch of the Wikimedia & Education Greenhouse (w.wiki/385). The W&E Greenhouse is a fully immersive co-learning experience that lasts 9 months and is designed for emerging education leaders in our movement who believe in the value of Wikimedia projects in education. It will equip participants with the skills, knowledge, and support to bring their ideas to life and scale them into high-impact education initiatives in their community.
The W&E Greenhouse has two modalities of participation: as a team ( w.wiki/3A$) and as an individual(w.wiki/3NY). Applying as a team means that you present an idea for an education project you want to develop in your local community. One team will be selected to receive seed funding for their project, on-site mentoring from WMF staff, and access to a free project management online course. Applying as an individual means completing a short form expressing your interest and motivation, and this will give you access to the free online course. So far we have received 1 team application and over 60 individual applications from all over the world. Additionally, we have a great team of experienced Wikimedia education leaders collaborating in the development of this initiative. There are still two weeks left to apply (deadline is May 12) and we are very excited to keep reading about the amazing education projects you want to develop! We have prepared some additional resources to support applications during these final weeks and we have compiled them into this slideshow (w.wiki/3NZ), including a short video guide for team applications. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Melissa Guadalupe Huertas via email: mguadal...@wikimedia.org. We appreciate you sharing this among your networks and we look forward to reading more applications.
