Public Policy Meetup

From Wikimania

Return to Meetups index page

The public policy meetup at Wikimania Cape Town.

Everyone working on or curious about Wikimedia's public policy activities is invited to join this preconference meetup. We'll be discussing questions like "Is the Brazilian 'fake news' law dangerous for Wikipedia?", "Why is there no Freedom of Panorama in Ghana?", "How to ensure net neutrality in the US?" and "Can we still turn around the EU copyright reform?".

The ongoing EU copyright reform will surely be a subject, but we want to take the opportunity being in Africa to put a special focus on these communities and to discuss actions planned and performed by ours groups in countries like Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria.
