Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Opérations Libres are events joining open data organizations, wikimedians, OpenStreetMappers, etc. during two or three days to improve free knowlege and open date in a territory. I was one of the Wikimedians in the first Opération Libre in Brocas, Landes, southwestern France, in April 2013, and I will attend the second in Gérardmer, Vosges, northeastern France, in May 2014.

Plan of the presentation (as a guide) :

  • Speaker's presentation : a young wikimedian, contributing on French Wikipedia since March 2010, and involved in several activities such as correcting and writing articles, or meeting other contributors (2 mn)
  • Opération Libre : goals (improve free knowledge and open data in a given territory) (2 mn) ; actors (Wikimedia community and french's chapter, OpenStreetMap, other free knowledge organizations, open data promoters, local institutions, inhabitants...) and their actions (writing articles, taking photos, collecting documents, live-mapping...) (4 mn) ; past events (Brocas, April 2013 and Gérardmer, May 2014) and how they did take place (6 mn) ; results, future and french territorial organization context (4 mn) (total: 16 mn max)
  • Questions.
  • Mainly "Legal & Free Culture" but il concerns "Open data" too.
