Sebastian Horndasch, project manager at Wikimedia Deutschland, working mostly on Open Educational Resources. The main thing that I am currently doing is organising the largest conference on Open Educational Resources in mainland Europe, the OERde14. The conference will take place on 12 and 13 September. It is mainly in German but there is one English track, so feel free to join us in Berlin!

Other than that, I work on a coalition on OER named Bündnis Freie Bildung. The coalition is backed by Wikimedia Deutschland, Creative Commons and Open Knowledge Foundation. We currently work together with experts in the OER field on drafting policy recommandations on OER. I also do a lot of other OER work - advocacy, blogging, drafting materials, organising events etc.

Other than OER, I am representing our work on Diversity together with my colleague Valentin Muenscher.
