Wikimania 2019 summary

Every year during the Northern summer holidays, approximately 1,000 members of the Wikimedia community – the worldwide group of volunteers and professionals behind projects including Wikipedia and Wikidata – gather for their annual event: Wikimania. This year’s event, hosted in Stockholm, had as its theme the relationship of open-access information to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Two of the thematic tracks during the conference were of particular relevance – the GLAM Space, and the Library Space – both of which heavily featured content about Wikidata and included presentations from current and former members of the Europeana Members Council.
