Project Background Edit

As a response to the coronavirus pandemic Moleskine Foundation launched The Solution Will Not be Televised campaign to mobilize a movement of volunteers and partner organisations towards sparking creative solutions to the pandemic. Whilst most of the world discussed Coronavirus at its outbreak and the months thereafter, so many could not join the conversation on the virus because this information was not available in their language. To spark creativity in solutions to the problems we are facing, we need knowledge that’s accessible in our mother tongue. Wikipedia receives 18 billion views a month from people looking for answers. For 1.2 billion living in Africa, the answers are often absent, or not there in their mother tongue. With the support of approximately 400 volunteers and Wikipedians like Dumbassman from Wikimedia SA, we managed to produce 120 articles about the basic facts of coronavirus in 16 African languages.
