TOPIC 1 - Privacy Campaign - Ankit

  • We decided to celebrate the whole month as a privacy month so we can educate people
  • In order to do this we created a team and a wiki page
  • The campaign have online and offline contribution
  • Online: We are posting a tip per day(14 until now), tweeting and using hashtags and encouraging Reps to participate
  • Offline: we have events and we created guidelines for Reps. We also ask Reps to share their experience from their events
  • Check our blogpost for more information
  • Many other communities have been aleady supporting our campaign
  • What are the top 2 things we have learned so far from this campaign that can be useful to other planning and actions for 2016?
    —> 1) a lot of people even if there are in internet are not aware that privacy is at risk, so creating more educating resources in simple language or graphics to educate them
    —> 2) we need to collaborate more with other organizations that are advocating for privacy (we stated working with tor and we shoud do that more)
    ------- Seems also as though we could be building some of these partnerships upfront as well.is there a way from the participation team to help you gather those lessons (like graphics from the community design team)we need help with graphics that would be awesome

TOPIC 2 - Mozilla.de mid term planning - Michael

  • 4 different topics
  • community structure, we need to document that in the wiki, we also need responsible persons for functional areas in order to act as mentors as welcome new people
  • website–> we need to get the contributors they found us through there
  • meeting/updates they happen biweekly, we don’t have a lot of attendace any more, we are launching a survey in order to see how efficiently structure this
  • Social media: they are seperate them so we need to currate them and add better content
  • How can you mitigate the risk of being too focused on the internal issues (and what are those risks?) instead of setting “external” goals?
  • if we are focused on extrenal goals the community itself won’t be ready to handle them --> seems like a tricky chicken/egg challengeit is indeed!
  • Is there value in doing the meetup along with a few other communities in the area? Poland, Baltic?
  • we are mostly focused in the language
  • is anyone from the community in contact of MJ Kelly?
  • not sure, but great input!
  • ACTIONS: the social media team is looking for german speaking contributors
  • Blog post
  • Presentation
  • Discussions
  • GitHub Issues

TOPIC 3 - Featured Future Events (Franc) 5 mins (or less)

TOPIC 4 - What we’re working on in Council - Rara

  • Last of the year campaign
  • people with no activity for the last 3 months received a certificate and moved to Alumni
  • since some mentors were moved to we are working on re-assigments
  • active Reps received a certificate too

TOPIC 5 - Community-Design Group Quick Announcement (Elio + Lucy)
