To follow up from the meeting I have started a discussion about the
abbrevation for Wikimedia Northern Europe on Meta. The discussion is
located at .
Like I outlined there, I suggest a period of twe weeks to make suggestions
about the abbreviation, and one week afterwards for a vote to decide what
should be used.

As promised at WikiNEM, here is the list of links to different education
resources it would be useful for you people working with education to know
about. (Sara, if you have something to add, the please do!):
- The education email list can be found here.
<https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/education> In this list you
also get info about when The education team at WMF has online office hours,
if you need to discuss education related work.
- Info about the Wikipedia & Education User Group can be found here
of you education workers should become members!
- The Program and Events Dashboard, <https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/>
that is usefull for planning and tracking editing events and trainings.
- Also, a lot of resources can be found at the Wiki Education home page
We also talked about creating a list of who works on education our
organizations. Meta is perhaps the best place for this list?

Two weeks ago this evening, we were gathered in a circle in Stockholm to
kick off the first ever WikiNEM meeting.
Now, I present you with my thoughts - as promised - in an article with my
reflections on our weekend together.
Thanks to Sara Mörtsell for her great help in guiding me and providing a
home for this. Thanks to Matthias Smed Larsen for moral support and the alt
text tip. :)
Sara will share it with WMF next week, so there should be a blog post from
them at some point.
This is the link, but it is not linked anywhere else just yet.
You can take this and use it for inspiration for writing an article in your
On behalf of Sara, I'd like to remind everyone to share their photos - if
they want to - by adding them on Commons in "Category:Wikimedia Northern
Europe Meeting 2018". We can make subcategories later. If you all post your
photos now, Sara won't have to send out a mail requesting the photos. :)
Have a great weekend!

There was this weird idea, that we should use this Nordic mailing list bit
more often. So I'll leave some comments on the following topics: lists
about vital articles, first (?) joint GLAM project, science photography
competition, and next Nordic meeting.
*Vital articles about Nordic countries*
* Eesti1000: https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipeedia:Eesti_1000
* it still needs some fixes (like some articles might be replaced), but it
is mostly ready
* here you might see the first comparison of wikis on how well do
they cover Estonian topics:
https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipeedia:Eesti_1000/Tabel (it was assembled
on a hurry on Sunday to have something to show so this is just a draft
version, but you can get some general idea on how well your wiki is
covering the Estonian topics)
* you are all welcomed to assemble similar lists about your countries.
* During the first half of 2019, there should be formed a set of virtual
exhibitions as part of a joint GLAM project. That is: we are collecting
information about artworks that our museums have about other Nordic
* At a moment the people involved are Astrid (Norway), Axel (Sweden),
Edgars (Latvia), Ivo & Merli (Estonia), Minna (Finland), Salvor (Iceland),
and Steen (Denmark). If someone wants to learn more about it or join the
project, then please contact the relevant people.
*Science photo competition*
* Next competition is in November 2019 (i.e. uploading images in November,
selecting the local winners in December and selecting the international
winners in January-February)
* It is also possible to participate as a goup of countries.
*Next Nordic wikimeetup*
* Likely to take place in Tartu, Estonia
