Welcome back from Wikimania 2017!





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

I have shared the ideas I gathered from Wikimania 2017 with my local community in the town where I live - Brno community (zpráva z Wikimanie 2017 (Vodnokon4e)) and also via social media with the community from my home wiki - bg.wikipedia: Идеи. We are still discussing the ideas and is it possible to implement some of them.

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?

Submission for CEE_Contests - I will have a discussion at CEE Meeting in Warsaw in September for feedback and ideas of organizing new contests in CEE region - Wikigames or similar (the goal will be to attract new users to edit and create articles about different countries)


I realized that Wikimania has a strong social function - even stronger than organizational or technical. During Wkimania I met a lot of people - not only from CEE region or my fields of knowledge and experience, but from everywhere. I attended to different sessions - from Strategy Direction and Future of Wikimania to Hackaton and Learning Days, I exchanged ideas, experience, etc. At the CEE meeting we also have discussed the bidding process for next year for CEE host and 2017 Movement strategy. I also met a lot of people from organizations not directly related to Wikipedia and I have exchanged ideas and experience with them - Creative commoners, advocacy organizations, etc.
