Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
  • I have shared my experience about Wikimania on my local Wikipedia village pump.
  • On Bhubaneswar Wikitungi(Bhubaneswar Wiki Club) meetup, I have shared some important aspects with my local community. How the global women are getting more active and getting involved with many projects on the wiki and Our community should. Shared some experience about meeting with people and education program and how a discussion is being held on a topic. Shared stickers, swags I have brought and other important links, photos etc. I will continue the discussion with technical knowledge sharing on the next meet up.
Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.

  • My overall experience is good. My goal in good extent has fulfilled as at I got to meet some people in personally.
  • There are four people from our community and we were staying together. I have initiated an idea so that, each day before going to the programs we decide that who should go to which program so that our community will benefit maximum from that.
