At the Wikimania 2019 conference in Stockholm, a thousand Wikimedians, free knowledge leaders and partners from the whole world will meet to discuss how free knowledge can contribute to sustainable development. In a dozen of rooms, workshops, panels, seminars and lectures will take place mapping out the future of our work. This will not be possible without enthusiastic volunteers, taking care of each room, making sure all session leaders are at the right spot at the right time, that the rooms are in order, that the technology works and that the attendees are happy. Is this person you?
