WLM doesn't fit in GLAM because WLM is a well defined format with 
specific objectives and the organization is easy because people can take 
12 or 6 or 3 months to organize it because the format is basically the same.

WLM is a good example to organize an event coordinating several 
organizations because the formula is clear.

GLAM at the moment is a "quid" that may change every time and in every 
context. For this reason it seems that GLAM can include WLM.
