Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

A bird's-eye view of a selection of the coolest projects of the Wikimedia Chapters in the past year. Be inspired by creativity and community work from all over the world, in order to transfer the enthusiasm and ideas to your communities back home. A 50 min presentation during which you will learn about more than 30-40 projects run by Wikimedia Chapters, followed by a vote on the coolest project and a 20 minutes panel - "How to run a cool project".

Wikimedia Chapters run awesome projects and programmes, all year long. Most of which, you will never hear about. Just like in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 we will give the Wikimaniacs an overview of the coolest of these projects. The overview includes topics like tips to be successful and things to better avoid, people and movement money involved, target groups or goals. Our goal is to inspire the audience: We hope that they learn from these projects, replicate or improve them and come up with their own ideas.

This session should be a great start of the first day for every Wikimania (and has been for the past five years).

Panel members:

  • Sandra Fauconnier, Wikimedia Nederland
  • Itzik Edri, Wikimedia Israel
  • Claudia Garad, Wikimedia Österreich
  • Pierre- Yves Beaudouin Wikimedia France
  • Susanna Mkrtchyan Wikimedia Armenia
