The project was proposed by Wikipedia Community User Group of Greece and is supported actively by the Municipality of Thessaloniki and Yiannis Boutaris himself, voted as world’s’ number 8 best mayor by the independent “City Mayors Foundation” (2015). The project will be implemented in cooperation with PostScriptum (Greece’s premier on cultural digital consulting), Greek Free Open Source Society (GFOSS), volunteer organisations (more than 2,000 volunteers that have participated in the thessaloniki youth capital during 2014) and platforms as well as higher education institutes and all major Museums and Libraries and Archives of the city. All stakeholders have already been engaged into discussion and collaboration and are planning concrete actions to be implemented. Once the project is finalized, neighboring and other international Wikipedia chapters or user groups will be included in order to expand the outreach of the project.
