The [[Project 888|888 project]] was a success. Let's make it look ridiculous compared to the 2009 edition. On the 07/08/09, hitch-hikers from all over the world will converge on a location that is kept secret up to now (because we haven't decided yet). This page will be used to coordinate the organisers until the month of October. Then we'll make something more informational or attractive.

=== STORY ===
  
=Philosophy=
+
A small group of enthusiastic travelers had decided to organize the first European Hitch-hiking Week.
  
At the premeeting on the last day of 888, there was a consensus on the fact that the event is more to promote the concept of Hitch-hiking rather than to all meet up somewhere and have a good time. This is why the proposal of meeting outside a city was ruled out, because we want to be seen by strangers.
+
The aim was to give one location and one time for a rally, and broadcast it to all the hitch-hikers of the world. The place was decided to be the "Champs de Mars" in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France; and the time 10pm on the 08/08/08, hence the name of "Project 888".
We need to pick a place where most nations can come visa-free and where we have a local organizer.
 
  
Please feel free to add your ideas and help organizing the 2nd hitchhiking European week.
+
150 people showed up from all around Europe and stayed for the 3 days week-end. It was a very intense time of exchange, smiles, and french wine.
 +
And they continue to meet every year in a different place.

** The necessity of having a local coordinator/support, like an HH club can be the best.
  
At the little meeting on the last day of 888, the general consensus was that the location had to move East, after Paris. If possible outside of the 15 original EU member-states. Ukraine was given A LOT of attention because it is the ONLY country of Europe that does not require complicated paperwork and expenses to get a visa. Kosovo was also given a lot of attention for that matter but also because we have a great local correspondent there and it can be a great opportunity for us to promote peace and hitchhiking in a region that needs such action.
+
=== PHILOSOPHY ===
Any location within the [http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/15/SchengenAgreement_map.svg Shengen space] will make it close to impossible for the non-Shengen to join. Plus the price of life will be affordable for almost everyone.
+
From the 888 to the 789, hitchikers think that the event is more to promote the concept of Hitch-hiking rather than to all meet up somewhere and have a good time and just drink. This is why the proposal of meeting outside a city was ruled out: we want to be seen by strangers and make some actions in the city ; for example at the 789 in Odessa, we have done a flashmobs about hitchiking to somewhere special and next try to get a lift to the event's place.

Ukraine is getting a lot of attention right now because it seems it is the only country in Europe where any other European can go without much visa-issue.

*We really have to get a Forum to help people organize their rides. We can't rely on CS groups, they suck.

*Hitchwiki :
 
**+ easy for everyone to evaluate the project
 
**+ belongs to the hitchhiker community
 
**+ everyone can edit, it is the most horizontal way of organising
 
**- a lot of thing isn't possible to do on that kind of site ?
 
** we can integrate video + photo and also blog-postings.
 
 
 
*Own Web site :
 
**+ all in one !
 
**+  autonomy/responsibilities
 
**- take a time to make it work
 
 
 
*Others propositions : ?
 
** We could have a Wordpress blog that can also have static pages. We can easily also integrate video + photo's and make it possible for anyone to post new blog-entries + link it directly to the wiki-pages. Plus, there are already Wordpress blogs [http://blogs.hitchwiki.org/ integrated] into this wiki but we could also do it external, see for a good example [http://mcbuzz.wordpress.com/ this site]. --[[User:Robino|Robino]] 14:15, 15 August 2008 (CEST)
 
 
 
 
 
: Once again, edit if you want to add something.
 
 
 
=Coordination/Communication=
 
 
 
We have to build a coordination with some partners, like the clubs of hitch-hikers in europe and maybe more ! everyone can ask to a club near from his place.

STORY

A small group of enthusiastic travelers had decided to organize the first European Hitch-hiking Week.

The aim was to give one location and one time for a rally, and broadcast it to all the hitch-hikers of the world. The place was decided to be the "Champs de Mars" in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France; and the time 10pm on the 08/08/08, hence the name of "Project 888".

150 people showed up from all around Europe and stayed for the 3 days week-end. It was a very intense time of exchange, smiles, and french wine. And they continue to meet every year in a different place.

2008 : The 888 project On 08/08/08 , hitchhikers from all over the world converged to Paris, for the first european hitchiking week.

2009 : The 789 project. On 07/08/09, Hitchikers meet again in Odessa in Ukraine, Eastern Europe.

2010 : Let's choose a new destination ! Helsinki ? Moscou ? Where ever you want ! Just some importants things have to been said :

    • We need to pick a place where many people can come without visas and where we have a local organizer.
    • The necessity of having a local coordinator/support, like an HH club can be the best.

PHILOSOPHY

From the 888 to the 789, hitchikers think that the event is more to promote the concept of Hitch-hiking rather than to all meet up somewhere and have a good time and just drink. This is why the proposal of meeting outside a city was ruled out: we want to be seen by strangers and make some actions in the city ; for example at the 789 in Odessa, we have done a flashmobs about hitchiking to somewhere special and next try to get a lift to the event's place.
