Project description[edit | edit source]

Briefly describe the issue or problem that motivates this application. What needs are you meeting?
In the project different Wikimepedians from different countries that are involved in lgbt issues will come together to take part in a human rights conference and other events of Europride. We will also discuss challenges in the home communities, write articles and upload pictures from Europride.
Describe project activities. What will you use the funding to do?
The funding would be to cover the flight costs for Joel Mitchel to Stockholm. If it is possible it would be great to cover 30 Euros per night for three nights for lodging as well.
Describe your plan for evaluating this project. How will you measure success? What types of things will you measure (e.g. content, participants)?
As last year the results will be collected under a results page on the project page. See Meta: Wikipedia_for_Peace_Stockholm_Europride_Results here] for Stockholm and Meta:Wikipedia_for_Peace_Madrid_World_Pride/Results for last year in Madrid.
Identify key people involved in this project. How will or could the wider Wikimedian community be involved?
There will be different Wikimedians involved. Users Shikeishu and Simon04 from Austria. User Sparrow (麻雀) from Germany. DaddyCell from Spain. Sergey.chemkaev from Ukraine. Pauli.pasternak from Poland. Aimeerim1228 from Kyrgysztan. Houssem Abida from Tunesia.
