The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a
process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked
together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During
this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of
editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are
more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a
powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an
opportunity to decide where we go from here.
This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement:
where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an
inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders,
affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional
partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to
participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You
are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.
The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help
frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.
