'Fresh' Projects

About WikiVilleEdit

WikiVille is a Global project which was set up in Bolton (UK) Local Authority in the Autumn of 2005. Conceived by John Bidder (Adviser for ICT & Innovation), WikiVille is going to be largely run by young people, whose mission it is to paint a picture of life for them in their part of town.

During Winter 2005/6, representatives from as many schools as possible were recruited to form part of a core WikiVille team, whose job it was to get trained (February 2006 with Will Richardson from New York USA) and get this thing rolling.


We have friends Down Under and in the east whom we will also be looking to to grow WikiVille across the world. Can the young people do it? You better believe it...because they do!


Enjoy WikiVille and don't leave without writing about how your part of your town works for you.
