Dear Friends,

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, equipment etc.

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.

Best regards,
Olaf Kosinsky
