Stay updated![edit]

You can join the following mailing lists to get updates from us:

Updates (updates(_AT_)wikimedia-europe(_DOT_)eu) – this is a list of all news related to Wikimedia Europe, our meetings, organisational matters and Board activity. The people receiving those emails are both official representatives of their organisations to WMEU and other people from those organisations and groups who wish to be informed about Wikimedia Europe's internal affairs. If you or anybody else from your organisation would like to be there – let us know and we will make that happen[2][3].

Public policy list (publicpolicy(_AT_)lists(_DOT_)wikimedia(_DOT_)org) – this is a public list to share policy updates, look for experiences and perspectives in general policy and advocacy questions – both by us in Brussels and our subscribers. The subscribers are policy and advocacy experts, enthusiasts and followers from Wikimedia and other organisations, including EU institutions, media and entities we sometimes get on opposite positions in policy debates with. It has a moderate amount of traffic and serves to share a much-praised monthly digest on Brussels policy prepared by Dimi[4][5][6].
