Dear Wikimedians, I wanted to share a quick update following Wikimedia Deutschland’s announcement of the Wikimedia Summit 2022 last week.
I am Cornelius, Event Coordinator at the Wikimedia Foundation’s Movement Strategy and Governance team, and the contact person for all things around the Summit at WMF’s side. The Movement Strategy and Governance team collaborates with Wikimedia Deutschland on planning and organizing the Wikimedia Summit. - We heard the feedback about the *tough timeline for the application.* Talking to everyone involved, we were able to adjust the timeline for the application: the application deadline is now April 24. This leaves the organizing team about a week to review all applications, the final invitee list for the in-person attendance will be published nevertheless on April 29. - *We’d like to clarify that each affiliate can (and needs) only apply once*. Add the name of your primary representative to the form. If your affiliate has a paid staff member in the position of an Executive Director, please let us know via a short email to wmsum...@wikimedia.de, so you’re ‘on the radar’. - We have received and heard repeated questions and suggestions to *open up the online participation/attendance for this event* for more affiliate representatives and individuals interested in Movement Strategy. While we’re reviewing this at the moment with the intention to do so, we’d just like to emphasize our need to make this decision consciously, and not just based on pure logistical questions. It has a huge impact on the concept of the event and the program design overall (especially in the hybrid setting), and will also set a precedent for the upcoming years. We will publish an update on this soon. - Last week, we have hosted two “Questions and Answers sessions” around the Wikimedia Summit. We have published the questions and answers as notes on Meta. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Summit_2022/FAQ Thanks for all your feedback and engagement around this event. We’ll keep you posted on the usual channels. If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach out to the organizing team via wmsum...@wikimedia.de Cheers Cornelius -- Cornelius Kibelka (he/him) Event Coordinator Movement Strategy + Governance 2030.wikimedia.org <https://wikimediafoundation.org/> *Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
