OutcomeEdit

Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
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.


One unique subject that attracted a lot my efforts during Wikimania was the meetings related to the future of the Wikimedia movement in Brazil and the role Wikimedia Foundation should play in the near future towards our community. The community of Brazilians set several meet-ups to talk over the Brazil Catalyst Project and its results. As a result of all those discussions with Affiliation Committee, Iberocoop mates, Anasuya and Assaf, we will held a meeting in São Paulo which I announced here and here. The main subject of this meeting will be the end of the Brazil Catalyst Project the way it is and the future of our movement.

I am very optimistic that our community will profit a lot from this experiences at Wikimania this year and will become stronger and more organized.

I had also the opportunity to share experience with other people around the globe who are involved in Educational Programs in Universities and Schools. I am myself a professor who participates in the Educational Program and theses contacts in Wikimania made me more confident and prepared to improve my work as professor and ambassador.
