Things to bring to SU

  • Folder Bli en del av kunskapsrevolutionen
  • Rollup Bli medlem
  • Rollup Become a member
  • Flag Wikipedia globe
  • Candy

One of Evelina, Axel and Tore will stand on Arlanda.


  • A few people (less than 10) asked about Wikimedia at the airport, or took a folder, mainly taxi drivers or travel guides whose customers did not turn up at the expected time. Family members who were there to pick up people didn't stay in the area for long. Some took candy when passing by, maybe candy with a message on it could work, e.g.
  • A few people signed up as members of Wikimedia Sverige at SU (9 signed up between August 16 and 18, but not all of them at the table), mainly volunteers and people who wanted to be a member of more than on Wikimedia organisation. Except for venue staff, all the people in the building were there for the conference so we didn't meet people who didn't know about us.
  • We created this info sheet, with answers to common questions.
