This is the Chapters report for Wikimedia Sverige, May 2012.

Board meeting

We held one board meeting via Google Hangout. [1] One of the important planning points was FSCONS (Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit) in November where one track will be Wikimedia, rendering it almost like a Wikipedia Academy.


We hired John Andersson as a project assistent for the Europeana project. He will work from Brussels the first weeks and later move to Stockholm in June.


Preparing reports from previous survey and workshops.

Europeana Awareness

Planning a edit-a-thon in Leuven Belgium. (It was cancelled 7th June because of a very low number of participants)

Access to technology

The equipment was used six times:

  1. Photography at Landsort, Kvarnholmen and areas in Stockholm.
  2. Some test photos in Stockholm areas.
  3. Wiki takes Norrköping: Images at commons:Category:Wiki Takes Norrköping
  4. Åcon: Images in commons:Category:Åcon 2012.
  5. The baptism of Swedish princess Estelle.
  6. Photo safari in Bergslagen: Images at commons:Category:Historical sightseeing in Uppland, May 2012

Also in May, videos from the book fair in Gothenburg where Members of the Parliament presented themselves was uploaded.


Together with the council for Swedens museums we have signed a Letter of Intent to cooperate during this year.

We finished our publication and the release party is the 1st of June.
