The Wikimedia projects are written, edited and curated by volunteers who are just like you. There are many ways to get involved and activities to suit the interests of everybody. Whether you are new to the idea of editing Wikipedia or an established community member we’d love for you to get involved and shape the sum of all human knowledge.
