Lessons learned

Lessons from this month

A key objective of the funding is to enable the movement as a whole to understand how to achieve shared goals better and faster. An important way of doing this is to identify lessons learned from entities who receive funds, and to share these lessons across the movement. The purpose of this section is to elicit some of these insights, which will be shared throughout the movement. Please answer the following questions in 1–2 paragraphs each.

What were your major accomplishments in the past month, and how did you help to achieve movement goals?

  • The major thing in July was the launch of the demo of the Public Arts database. It can showcase what the possibilities are and easier gives access to more data which will increase the quality on related Wikipedia articles.

What were your major setbacks in the past month (e.g., programs that were not successful)?

  • No major setbacks in July.

What factors (organizational, environmental) enabled your success?

  • Swedish holidays made everything slow so as expected no huge successes were made.

What unanticipated challenges did you encounter and how did this affect what you were able to accomplish?
