Who is going to WordCamp Nordic?

Community Summit in 2019?

The last Community Summit was in 2017, before WordCamp Europe.

Historically, Community Summit happens when we have problems that we can’t solve online. The event, as we’ve done it in the past, requires an invitation-only format, which introduces a pretty toxic element into our egalitarian and highly open group. It is traumatic to organize an invitation-only event in the WordPress project.

But what if we could re-imagine it as an event for vision and community building? Getting feedback first from the community is key.
We plan on postig in the Community blog ans start with some basic questions: “What does community summit mean to you? should we do one/do we need it? how should we handle invite-based or should it be done in a new way?”
