From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taskforces and child projects:

The Europe WikiProject is a project committed to improving, expanding and co-ordinating Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to Europe: the continent, its people and their culture. It concentrates primarily on matters of a pan-European, or cross-border nature; including international organisations (other than the European Union, which has its own project). The project also manages the European portal.

This page and its subpages as they develop contain suggestions on formatting and layout of articles, which can be discussed at the project's talk page. To participate, simply add your name at the participants section.

Sign up at the 10,000 Challenge if interested in regularly contributing articles on any country in Europe!

The objective

The aims of this project are:

  • To increase the number of articles related to Europe
  • To improve the quality of articles related to Europe
  • To create as many featured articles about Europe as possible

We acknowledge and are grateful for the work of the other projects working in this area. This project will also be focusing on those countries which do not actively have an existing WikiProject working with them, specifically Cyprus and Republic of Macedonia. It shall also maintain the European portal.

The Project does not take responsibility for areas of Europe already covered by a project. For example, where a European country is covered by a national project or a regional project (e.g. WP:EEUROPE, WP:MICROSTATE, etc.). The project shall also not cover articles involving the European Union, Eurovision or European History. It does however support such projects and allows them to share resources such as peer review. Small projects are welcome to become taskforces.
