This Wikimedia Participation Support request was funded in the fiscal year 2014-15. A report is available.
On the October 14 — October 17th 2015 Creative Commons is going to organize the "Global Summit 2015" an international conference organized every in two year. I am the public lead of the Creative Commons Bangladesh (https://wiki.creativecommons.org/Bangladesh) and going to attend these events. Being the lead of a CC jurisdiction i got a waiver on the event registration. But the other costs will not be covered by CC. So i am applying for a grant to cover my round trip travel, food and other local transportation cost. But there are some other costs like the accommodation, food, transport and other costs for which i am applying for this grant.
Along with my involvements with Creative Commons, i also contribute to a number of communities. I am one of the founding members of Wikimedia Bangladesh, core team member of Open Knowledge Foundation Bangladesh, founding member of Bangladesh Open Source Network and so on. Recently i also get the fellowship from the Institute for Open Leadership.
On this conference, all the jurisdictions of this region will show their progress and upcoming plans. CC Bangladesh has just started and there are a lot of upcoming events and activities listed in the future plan. Many of them will be organized with the Wikimedia Bangladesh as well. So it would be a big opportunity the meet the other affiliates of the same regions. There will be a lot to learn form them. Many of the affiliates are mostly dependent on and/or working together with the Wikimedia communities.
