Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?
    • Most of the things worked according to plan:
      1. proper audience, both in number and quality
      2. good cooperation and support from the university
      3. openness and receptivity for Wikimedia and WMROMD projects
  • What did not work so well?
