This is the Chapters report for Wikimedia Sverige, May 2012.
We held one board meeting via Google Hangout.  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.
Planning a edit-a-thon in Leuven Belgium. (It was cancelled 7th June because of a very low number of participants)
