Proposed Participation[edit]

Wikimedia Denmark would like to let two board members (me and da:Bruger:Steenth) participate in FSCONS 2011 - a Nordic event covering free software in Gothenburg, Sweden. At this event we will be able to discuss a variety of issues concering Wikimedia's projects with people who has a genuine interest on the subject.

We will establish a stand with other Nordic Wikimedia chapters and have a Nordic Wikimedia meeting.

Goal and Expected Impact[edit]

  1. Help people understand Wikimedia's projects better - including free licenses, editing, contributing and re-using.
  2. Recruit new contributors to Wikimedia's projects.
  3. Hold a Nordic Wikimedia meeting.
  4. Recruit new members for Wikimedia Denmark.
  5. Recruit new members for other Nordic Wikimedia chapters.

Generally we hope the project will help us use the free software community and help them using us. This is done through our common Nordic stand where we will tell and show people about the projects.

We will consider this project a success if we have 100 discussions and recruit 5 new members for Wikimedia Denmark. However impact on people may be hard to measure so these numbers are merely estimations.
