I don't know if you have yet heard about the Wikipedians in European
Parliament project we are planning February 3rd to 6th, 2014 in Strasbourg.
So far we have invited chapters and volunteers through the chapters and
Wikimedia mailing list but we haven't heard from any volunteers from
Portugal, therefore I'd like to send a personal note to you. Our aim is to
have volunteers from each EU country / languages participating.
The details about the project can be found here:
The Wikimedia Foundation provided us with a Grant to cover the basic
project cost in Strasbourg, several chapters and other Wikimedia affiliates
have already confirmed their support to their local community for
participation, to cover the travel cost to Strasbourg and the
accommodation, while the Grant covers mails, transportation in Strasbourg,
We need your help to find participants (photographers, authors and other
helpers) from your country. At least one would be great. If your entity has
no funds to provide travel costs to Strasbourg and the accommodation (45
EUR / night in a single room or 35 EUR / night / person in a double room)
then please look anyway if you can find a volunteer, present us with the
cost and we will try to find other chapters to sponsor it. We can't promise
but we'll try.
Any volunteers should sign up here:
The deadline for registration is until January 19th (next Sunday). We are
going to make a group reservation in the hotel.
