Like other Wikimedia groups around the world, WCM holds meetups to enable anyone interested in Wikipedia and related projects to meet informally and discuss ways to get involved in the various activities of the organization.

During the summer of 2020 we're holding free and open online meetups every other THURSDAY at 6pm CEST (that's Malta time!) on Google Hangouts via this link...
