Identify the top two projects for your country & national country pages

The brainstorm list below was generated by participants of the WikiPasifika online workshop. We would like to initiate one or two Wikipasifika projects on WikiEducator in response to national needs. Please help us in prioritising the list of projects by:

  • Posting, from your national perspective, the top two ideas for a joint WikiPasifika project in this forum
  • What information should appear on the WikiEducator country page for each country?
