Seems that you are doing a great work !
Radios and encyclopedias are certainly two means that respond to the
"Kinderrechtskonvention" articles on medias and "Meinungs- und
On children involvement in the content, there is this page:
and in the Q&A page:
How could we rely on children as editors, since they are not likely to
be able - nor willing - to write good encyclopedic content?
> Some of them are willing, probably in a similar or slightly higher
proportion as adults that want to edit Wikipedia. They certainly can't
write quality content alone and as beginners on a wiki. Nevertheless,
their involvement and contribution can really grow the global content
and have several benefits for such a wiki.
Then it's a matter of building a community, which is a significant task.
If you would like to work on it, you would certainly be able to get some
good help from the German Wikipedia community.
Whether such a wiki should be run/hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation,
Vikidia, OLPC, Radiojojo or else is almost a secondary question, the
most important being to have a good start and bring together enough
people who agree on its objective and features, and are eager to run,
care it and expand its content.
I would be glad to discuss it further!
