Hi everyone, It’s now been three weeks since we have released the Wikimedia 2030 Movement Strategy Recommendations.
It has been a unique journey, the road has sometimes been bumpy, and every step with all of you has been massively rewarding. For me, it still feels a bit unreal, and the thought of having reached this milestone has not fully sunk in yet. What helps me to understand what we have achieved together is the appreciation and excitement that many of you are sharing. We have many, many weeks left until we reach the year 2030, and I am optimistic that the recommendations will enable Wikimedia to grow a better future – for our movement, for ourselves, and for the world around us. With the release of the recommendations, the Core Team and I will be winding down our work by the end of June. We are now tidying up our meta pages and are working on a summary of our work to ensure the expertise and knowledge that we have gathered along the way will be well documented for the movement and for the road ahead into implementation. Our mandate to create Recommendations officially ends here, as well as the mandate of the working groups, writers, reviewers, connectors, and community strategy liaisons. I want to again extend my wholehearted gratitude to all of them – for their hard work in their many roles, and of course to them as individuals whose hearts beat for our movement's vision – for getting us to the publication of this unique and promising product. Thank you! The Wikimedia Foundation is now beginning the transition from the development of recommendations to implementation, which will be collaborative, distributed, and movement led. In June, we will continue to work with Ryan Merkley (Chief of Staff in the Foundation) on the transition, and you will hear more about it this week. On behalf of the Core Team, I am looking forward to seeing the results of the last two years of work being implemented into Wikimedia’s path towards becoming the support system for the whole free knowledge movement. Onwards! Nicole PS. I’ve got some reading and listening tips if you want to dive deeper into the recommendations: The community strategy liaisons have been busy creating audio clips where they discuss or read the recommendations; there are recordings in Arabic, French, German, and Spanish . There is also a video in Portuguese  providing an overview of the recommendations and videos in English  that look at the whole process, the principles, and each recommendation. Diversity working group member and writing group member Marc Miquel-Ribé has also shared his insights into how the movement strategy was developed and the ideas that have shaped it . Find more links and formats on Meta .
