The free encyclopaedia Wikipedia is written by volunteer authors. There is no full-time editorial staff, instead Wikipedia thrives on the participation of as many people as possible. But the number of active authors is decreasing. If this trend continues, articles will become impossible to maintain, and there won't be any new ones.
We are therefore committed to ensure that Wikipedia is reliable, comprehensive and up to date in the future as well. We draw people's attention to the fact that they can participate in Wikipedia and offer interested people help and entry opportunities.
We encourage all authors – whether new or already active for many years – and are at their side when it comes to putting their plans into action. For example, we award scholarships, help with workshops and competitions, or provide technical support.
