with entities


4th March. We had a meeting with the Castelldefels city council and the Center
for Regional Studies (Centre d'Estudis Comarcals) of Baix Llobregat to start
with the test Wikiproject:Castelldefels. This is part of the association's
collaboration with the Center for Regional Studies of Baix Llobregat. Further
information. KRLS

10th March. Meeting with the Visual Artists Association of Catalonia. They
manage the Hangar space of Poble Nou, where one of the conferences of the Free
Culture Forum of Barcelona took place. One of the purposes is to sign an
agreement to have an editing workshop on Wikipedia on Hangar, having an
experienced person in edition to give support for the ones who need it and,
besides that, one of the aims is to have a Wikiproject in charge of enriching
the Wikipedia contents on visual arts. KRLS & Gomà.

26. Meeting with the enterprise in charge of the Environment Information Point
of the Balearic Islands' Government. The aim is to sign an agreement with them
to let them use the vp:Portal:Ecologia. We would assist them with volunteers to
have some edition courses on Wikipedia. They will use the Wikipedia's book as a
starting point and some activities in this sense will be held for the purpose
of promoting Wikipedia and encouraging more people to use it on Balearic Islands
ecology-related articles. Gomà.

26. Meeting with the General Director of Innovation and Teachers' Formation of
the Balearic Government. Their support for next year's edition of Viquibalear
is confirmed. One of the questions that arouse during the meeting was helping to develop software tools to
improve the system. They will enable us to involve the GD of linguistic
policy and the regional tourism ministry to achieve further economic support.
There is also the possibility of opening the project in other territories. Pau
Cabot & Gomà.
