Dear fellow Wikimedians,

They’re here! [1] We are delighted to announce the first round of
draft recommendations for structural change within our movement have
been published. The recommendations have been developed by the nine
Wikimedia 2030 working groups and are a key tool to help us build the
future of our movement.

Working group members have been working tirelessly for a year to
research the movement, analyze community input shared via community
conversations, and gain insight into external trends. A huge thank you
to each and every member for helping us reach this key milestone.

The draft recommendations are a first look at ways we can adapt our
movement’s structures to help us advance in our strategic direction.
They are the starting point for conversations about what kind of
future we want to create together.

The recommendations are not final. In order to get them to that stage,
your input is needed! We would like to hear from you all what these
changes would mean for you in your local or thematic context, what do
you like about them, and where you potentially see any red flags. And
of course, always critically question whether these recommendations
support the strategic direction.

There are a few ways to do this:
* Read through the recommendations online and provide your input
directly on Meta. [2]
* If you will be at Wikimania, join us in the Wikimedia 2030 space. [3]
* Attend a Strategy Salon hosted by an affiliate where you live. [4]
* Reach out to a Strategy Liaison in your language to share feedback,
or lead a conversation of your own. [5]

Over the next month, working groups will take the input they receive
into the recommendations, alongside external advice and research, and
use it to refine and finalize them. Share your views, and help shape
what Wikimedia will look like in 2030 and beyond.

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to get in touch.

Best wishes,
