Dear Wikimedians, Today marks the final milestone of phase 1 of our movement strategy process. Over the past eight months, many of you, of your peers, colleagues, partners and friends have contributed to an endeavor that resulted in the new Strategic Direction of the Wikimedia movement.
This direction provides us with an answer to the question: What do we want to build and achieve as a movement over the next 10–15 years: By 2030, Wikimedia will become the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge, and anyone who shares our vision will be able to join us. On behalf of the strategy team, it’s with great pleasure that I invite you today to declare your intent to work together towards this future. Organized groups as well as individual contributors of our movement are invited to endorse the Strategic Direction by adding their signature to the endorsement page on Meta-Wiki. You will find all necessary instructions there. By endorsing the Strategic Direction, you are not necessarily agreeing with every single outcome of the first phase. Endorsing means that you commit to participating in the next phase of this discussion in good faith and to help define, by Wikimania 2018, how to come to an agreement on roles, responsibilities, and organizational strategies that enable us to implement that future. In addition to signing the meta page, you are all welcome to use the #wikimedia2030 hashtag on social media to celebrate and share your excitement with the world and encourage other Wikimedians to show their support, too. Ideally, please leave questions or remarks on the talk page, to make it easier to follow-up in a structured way. Thank you!
