We are asking a correspondent TPG in order to support the travel participation from Portugal (Wikimedia Portugal that I represent) to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, in the 12th-15th October 2016. We intend to prepare and organize in cooperation with the Brazilian Group the meeting “Wiki Lusófona 2017”, for the “I Conferência Lusófona”, according to the development of the Portuguese Language Wikipedia Platform, a basic project of cooperation. It is to participate and share knowledge and experience about and during the “I Congresso Científico Brasileiro da Wikipédia – CCBWIKI. On thursday 13th and Friday 14th from 08:00 am to 06:00 pm we will have the Congress activities. Also according to the CCBWiki program, on Saturday we will have conclusions and results discussion from 08:00 am to 12:00pm. Then returning to Portugal. There is also an effort taking place in Portugal between some Wikimedia Portugal members and several Portuguese universities and their PHD investigators with the objective to carry out a Wikipedia edition skills cooperation programe. I have been representing Camões Institute, the Portuguese Language and Culture Institute. This Institute makes part of the Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and represents and supports in Portugal and in the Portuguese Speaking Countries Community the Portuguese Language and Culture, promoting their diffusion and activities. In addition, we intend to meet the Consul of Portugal in Rio. This city has the largest Portuguese Community in Brazil. I would like to meet the Consul with Rodrigo Padula and other representatives from the Brazil Group with the objective of knowing the portuguese entities resources and activity and potential interests, finding how they can support our cooperation programs and, by other hand, to present Wikimedia/Wikipedia Portuguese Language Platform and members as well as the programs we intend to implement, in particular Wiki Lusófona 2017.
Goal and expected impact
As a result of my participation in the CCBWIKI and in extra meetings, we will stablish the guidelines and schedule a procedures plan for the Wiki Lusófona 2017 organization.

We intend to meet the Portuguese Consul and representatives of the Portuguese language and culture in Rio de Janeiro, including the Portuguese community Centre in Rio and the Literature office, in order to present each other activities, propose a synergies plan and stablish an intentions protocol or a MoU.
