Report date:

Wikimedia Conference 2012

Introduction

Naveen Francis and Tinu Cherian attended the Chapters conference at Berlin as India Chapter

representatives. They presented India Chapter Update. The scope of this document is to record key takeaways from the conference that could be of use to Wikimedia India. The conference proceedings were well documented, as the organizers have engaged professional facilitators and visual artists to summarise key points in an interesting way, hence no chronological report is attempted.

Wikimedia Chapter Association

Wikimedia India participated in the discussions on Wikimedia Chapters’ Association. We signed the Wikimedia Chapter Association agreement in Berlin.
