A bird's-eye view of a selection of the coolest projects of the Wikimedia Chapters in the past year. Be inspired by creativity and community work from all over the world, in order to transfer the enthusiasm and ideas to your communities back home. A 40 min presentation during which you will learn about more than 30-40 projects run by Wikimedia Chapters, followed by a vote on the coolest project and Questions.

Wikimedia Chapters run awesome projects and programs, all year long. Most of which, you will never hear about. Just like in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 we will give the Wikimaniacs an overview of the coolest of these projects. The overview includes topics like tips to be successful and things to better avoid, people and movement money involved, target groups or goals. In addition we explain about previous cool projects that were mimicked successfully in other places, thus showing that it can be done. Our goal is to inspire the audience: We hope that they learn from these projects, replicate or improve them and come up with their own ideas.

This session should be a great start of the first day for every Wikimania (and has been for the past six years).
