This summer we kicked off the second edition of the Wikimedia Accelerator
UNLOCK  with five project teams from across Europe (and one participant
from India) and intensively accompanied them with coaching, mentoring and
tons of input from expert within our movement and beyond that helped them
bring their ideas to life.
In no more than three months they have developed prototypes that offer
concrete and scalable solutions to the free knowledge and this year’s
challenge of (re)building trust in the digital age, ranging from a
crowdsourced directory that will help you find every official governmental
online account around the globe, a tool exposing and educating on
technology supply chains, to an open toolkit for language archivists on how
to create permanent, accessible and inclusive audiovisual archives .
You are invited to meet and learn from the teams as they showcase their
prototypes on *October 6th, 2021 at 4:00 - 5:30pm CEST*. Join us online
*What to expect on UNLOCK Demo Day?* All eyes on the project teams and the
prototypes! The first part will give you the chance to find out what the
participants have achieved in the last few months as well as the ups and
downs they have faced. There will be room and time for exchange and/or
exploring synergies (i.e. maybe the projects are interesting for your
communities, other ideas can be discussed for further development or
adaption of the projects in your particular context, etc.) We’ll conclude
the showcase with a discussion panel "Glimpse into the Future", in which we
will discuss with the teams their next steps and exchange ideas.
We would be more than happy to see you at the Demo Day. If you still have
open questions regarding the Demo Day, head to our blog post for answers
 or feel free to contact me. Also, we would appreciate if you could forward
this email and the attached invite to your network.
Looking forward to your participation!
