  • Wikipedia workshop on the Vichy’s history and heritage
  • Wiktionnary workshop on thermal vocabulary and Bourbonnais dialects.

This Wikpedia WE is done in partnership with the city of Vichy and is one of cultural events organized this year for the Great Spas of Europe (Vichy + 10 others European spa cities) , a common candidate for inclusion on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

So I’am looking for any information on partnerships or joint actions between Wikimedia and Unesco.

I also looking for contacts with Wikimedian involved in Glam, history or heritage of the others spa cities: BadenBaden, Bad Ems, Bad Kissingen (Germany), Bath (UK), Baden bei Wien (Austria), Spa (Belgium), Montecatini Terme (Italia), Karlovy Vary, Frantiskovy Lázne et Mariánske Lázne (Czech Republic) for further actions.
