You are aware of the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak globally. In light of the concerns with respect to COVID 19/Coronavirus outbreak in several parts of the world, CIS-A2K, after getting instructions from WMF and recommendations from the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) management and the board, will be implementing the following measures:
Given the risk of human to human transmission, we are currently cancelling/postponing our all offline/on-site Wiki-events such as workshops, conferences etc. You might have noticed in another thread on this mailing list that we have decided not to conduct Hackathon at this moment, which was supposed to be conducted at the end of March. Similarly, Advanced Train-the-Trainer has been kept on hold as well.
CIS-A2K request page currently won’t support any offline/onsite Wiki-events such as photowalk, workshop etc.
As of now, this will be applicable till 15 September 2020.
To keep the energy of the Wikimedia communities in India, CIS-A2K is planning to support and organise online Wiki-events (remote participation, where no physical presence is required), we’ll get back to you with further details.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation. For any question, please reply in this thread or email email@example.com
With regards and good wishes,
