Special Olympics Wiki World

The Special Olympics Wiki World project was led by Rix Research @ UEL and delivered in partnership with Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia. The project was funded through the European Commission’s Youth in Action Programme and focused on themes of media literacy and inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities.

The objective of the project was to increase participation of young people with intellectual disabilities in media and communication activities, engaging Special Olympics athletes, coaches and supporters in design and creation of accessible ‘easy-build’ Wiki Websites’ through a programme of wiki building workshops across Europe. Outputs include an online support hub and Wiki World Portal. Find out more about the project and its outcomes on the Special Olympics Wiki World website.
