Learnings in Communication

The second semester of the last year marked the beginning of the communication activities of the group Wiki Educação Brasil. As unknown to the media, we use the Wikipedia brand as the flagship of the our actions because it has greater acceptance by reporters and particularly for being the protagonist of the first wiki brazilian congress, organized by the our group. Consequently the platform was present in most of the notes and guidelines suggestions.

Through the analysis of relevant data from Wikipedia, we began regular contact with the most importants brazilian newspapers and local media (Rio de Janeiro).

In spite of this unfavourable conjuncture that Brazil is experiencing, we have won qualified media spaces such as TV Globo, Canal Futura, O Globo, CBN, Estadão, IstoÉ, G1 and Agência Brasil. Regional and specialized journals in technology have also been reached, such as Diário do Nordeste, O Tempo, Estado de Minas, Gizmodo and Tecmundo.

We suggest, articulate and perform interviews with the our spokesmen Dario Taraborelli (Wikimedia Foundation), Daniel Kinzler (Wikimedia Germany), Luis Alvarez (Wikimedia Mexico) and Rodrigo Padula, Juliana Monteiro, Otavio Louvem, Marcio Gonçalves, Lina Nakata, Carlos D'Andrea and Flavio Gonzaga, members of the Wiki Educação Brasil.

The events that had a wide and positive repercussion in the media were Wiki Medical App, CCBWIKI and Wiki Loves Monuments. In contrast, Wiki Loves the Olympics and Ediathon 100Women Wiki, in partnership with the BBC, were the least impacted in the press.

The manual search collected in the period 89 publications - the most in websites.

The biggest challenge is getting the attention of brazilian reporters, because the press is in crisis, with smaller teams. Our objective is to spread the essence of the wikimedia movement, which can be applied on online platforms and beyond. Wiki platforms are instruments of citizenship and democracy, and that is public interest.
