Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
I will present information regarding how the Wikimedia Foundation can help maintain world peace. I may sometimes use non-verbal movements in the presentation to help prove my point on non-verbal languages like sign and body languages. In the case that assistance is required regarding the explanation on a particular subject, I will simply explain it if the subject is worth knowing. Maintaining world peace is something that everyone would like to have. For each and every one of us, we did feel isolated from the rest of the world before, which is why this presentation may help those to learn about world peace and built a generation of globally accepted people. The Wikimedia project sites Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons has helped in this cause as to maintain surveillance in situations across the world. Aside those two, other Wikimedia project sites has also helped us learn about things around us. I feel that this abstract may not be enough to calmly resolve the situation regarding world peace but I'm sure everyone dreams of that in the past and present. We can be worried about the future if war ever breaks out again. It can be the end of a person's life as we know it. Nobody wants to die mercilessly. As I know, Wikimedia, as a US foundation, is able to sustain itself to help us learn. There is no limit in learning about everything. Hope you can accept this proposal and listen to my explanation about the world and Wikimedia.
