On 8 March, International Women's Day, we organised together with the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU in Brussels, and with support from Wikimedia Sweden, the GenderGap edit-a-thon to create and improve biographies on women on Wikipedia. About 14 new articles have been written and at least six have been improved. A good year in a long tradition.
On 12 March the annual conference Open Belgium took place in Louvain-la-Neuve, organised by Open Knowledge Belgium and supported by Wikimedia Belgium. The conference is about the subject of open knowledge, open data and more.
One of the topics was: Linked Open Data in Limbo: Co-Creation as a Catalyst for Open Cultural Heritage Resources. In this presentation knowledge institutions were asked to rethink their role in society in the context of social and technological changes. This was illustrated with open data projects, including those with Wikipedia/Wikimedia and the open data community was asked to ask the heritage sector for more, and where necessary to contribute with the development of tools.
