Overview[edit]

1. In order to support community review, please provide a brief description of your organization's work in the upcoming funding period.

Wikimedia Czech Republic will work in 2020 through three programsː Multimedia & Community Programs, EDUcational Programs and Wikidata & TECH Programs.

All three programs will be cross-cutting by three main scopes: Diversity, Capacity Building and Partnerships. Diversity mainly from the scope of gender and age.

We will be focused on this target groupsː newcomers in general, seniors / librarians, minors & students / teachers, women and experts.

Multimedia & Community Programs: Programs are focused on the building of diverse community and partnerships. These activities often go hand in hand.

  • In the previous period, we were focused on supporting community activities - whether content creation or community-generated activities. This year, we will be mainly focused on our “offline” community - members who we can meet mainly in offline space. We would like to attract diverse newcomers and new members to the active community through organizing the offline events - like editathons, workshops etc. Within the themes, we will be more aware of supporting the diverse-theme events to attract a diverse community.
  • We will still support the experienced or “offline” community within their traditional activities - where they can be focused on creating new content or learning new skills amongst them (Capacity Building), but we will extend the fund for all Individual Community Projects, that are organized independently by the engaged community members.
  • Within Multimedia programs, we will be more focused on developing step by step cooperation and partnership with strategic central institutions and experts within. Now rely more heavily on our experiences. In the last period, we made the rules of mutual cooperation more readable and we would like to apply them in creating diverse partnerships with various forms. Very often we are building the partnerships on the base of cooperation in organizing thematic events for the public.

EDUcational Programs: Within the EDUcational Programs, we will be focused on newcomers, local development and sustainability.

In the previous period, we have created a team of lecturers that allows us to reach our goals on this field and cover topics related to Wikimedia-project contribution. Within the EDUcational Program, we are keeping the main target groups, that should bring the diversity into the community on the one hand and help us sharing the main target - become the “essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge”.

  • In the framework of the activity for seniors, we are more focused on more targeted and long-term support for librarians across the country, so the libraries can form local courses for seniors - and share this know-how sustainably and locally.
  • Other target group - teachers - allow us to reach the minors and students in general. Program Students write Wikipedia (for university and high school teachers) and Teach (with) Wiki (high and primary school teachers) are both focused on spreading the idea of free knowledge between young people. We want to create the conditions, where we can work with our cooperative teachers in the long term scope.

Wikidata & TECH Programs: Wikidata & TECH is the 3rd program of our chapter, focusing on a growing community of tech-savvy volunteers and Wikidata enthusiasts.

Without employees, we have strategically chosen areas where even volunteer force or minor contracts are enough to make a difference.

  • The first goal is to continue serving as a contact point for important Czech institutions which are considering donating data to Wikidata. A recently compiled/crowdsourced list of Wikidata-related FAQs for institutions will definitely help. We will also call a community meeting to define key data areas (because we have reached a point where we cannot give attention to all institutions asking for collaboration).
  • The second goal is to continue collaboration with two or three high-profile organisations - especially with National Library of the Czech Republic, where we run a joint grant project to turn their authority database into a wikibase.
  • The third goal encompasses all educational activities in the Wikidata program. This can be divided into 1) regular workshops (mostly for newbies) organized more centrally and 2) smaller hands-on events specializing on a specific tool or technical issue, which are usually community-organized and decentralized.


2. Name, fiscal year, and funding period.
  • Legal name of organization: Wikimedia Czech Republic

Amount of funding received from WMF for the current year 2,788,330,65 CZK 125,972.42 USD


4. How does your organization know what community members and contributors to online projects need or want? Does your organization conduct needs assessments or consult the contributors and volunteers most involved with its work?
  • Bimonthly board meetings: Wikimedia Czech republic holds bi-monthly meetings with its Board. These meetings are open to the whole community, and travel allowances are paid for those community members who wish to attend. The annual plan is being designed along with our local community and is being approved during our General Assembly during April.
  • Community advisory groupsː We have created a community advisory group for each program/activity. The group should became a bridge between community and target groups. We asked experienced community members as well as our colaborative partners out of community. Project managers communicate activity development plans with them and discuss a specific topics during the year.
  • Online discussions: We ask for opinions on specific issues online on our members wiki and mailing list. However, our experience shows that this usually creates less feedback than in-person discussions. Furthermore, we monitor talk pages and discussions on Wikimedia projects which are related to our chapter's activities. We invited the community to participate in these discussions via announcements in the various village pumps and via the mailinglists.
  • WMCZ-wiki and the newsletter:Throughout the year, we remain in contact with the community via WMCZ-wiki and the newsletter. A staffmember and a board member are regularly present at the Wikimeetings, monthly meetings of a community, where we can discuss topics face-to-face
  • Survey: we are creating forms for specific topics and ask community to give us their feedback during the year about a specific topic/changes that could influence the community


5. Please provide a link to your organization's strategic plan, and a link to your separate annual plans for the current and upcoming funding periods if you have them.

Our Annual plan for 2020 will be approved by the Board during November 2019.

B. EDUcational Programs[edit]

Seniors Write Wikipedia, new logo

EDUcational Programs are a part of the association's activities toward gaining newcomers and expanding awareness of Wikimedia projects as well as the active Czech community. The main target groups are youth, students, and seniors. In addition to organizing courses, we also provide support for the creation of target groups for shared or supported editing - such as themed editing or wikiclubs.

Within the EDUcational Programs, we are keeping the main target groups, that should bring the diversity into the community on the one hand and help us sharing the main target - become the “essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge”.

Program Students write Wikipedia (for university and high school teachers) and Teach (with) Wiki (high and primary school teachers) are both focused on spreading the idea of free knowledge between young people. We want to create the conditions, where we can work with our cooperative teachers in the long term scope.


  1. Seniors write Wikipedia (SePW)
  2. Students write Wikipedia (SPW)
  3. Teach (with) Wiki
  4. Other EDU topics

1. Seniors Write Wikipedia[edit]

SePW’s activities are aimed at addressing a target group of seniors who, with their knowledge and experience, can become Wikipedia editors. In the framework of the activity for seniors, we are more focused on targeted and long-term support for librarians across the country, so that the libraries can form local courses for seniors - and share this know-how sustainably and locally.

SePW has great PR potential, because it enables us to promote the activities of WMCZ and thereby further promote the meaning of Wikimedia projects.

Target groupː

1) Seniors

2) Librarians interested in organizing local senior courses

Goal of the activityː

  • More seniors involved in activity
  • More libraries which run the courses for seniors locally

Intended outcomeː

1) Promotion of WMCZ activities + recognition by other stakeholders > we are actors in senior oriented field.

2) Increase the diversity (more woman and seniors, elder male) among editors and gaining/nurturing of the new editors

Medium term goalː

More focused and long-term support for librarians so that the programme can be more widely and sustainable disseminated and maintained long-term.

Activity Development Planː

a) Focus more on further development of library courses and regional

There is a separate system of education for librarians:

i) Basics editing course - the broadest target group

ii) Editing workshop - a follow-up practical training for deepening

knowledge from the basics of editing

iii) How to teach seniors to edit Wikipedia - a specific course for librarians interested in organizing local senior courses; they acquires our know-how

b) Follow up activities for librarians - specific mentoring and individualised support (information, materials, PR etc.)

c) Support end expansion for a new team of trainers - we have created a team of trainers - external collaborators - who are able to teach about Wikimedia projects.

d) Accreditation (official recognition) for existing trainings for librarians.

Students Write Wikipedia, new logo

2. Students Write Wikipedia[edit]

Another target group - teachers - allows us to reach minors and students in general.

Students - especially undergraduates - are a good target group for expanding awareness of Wikimedia projects. As a side effect, they can often generate quality content for Wikimedia projects as part of a range of topics in the classroom.

Addressing students is traditionally done through university educators who have chosen editing Wikipedia as one form of evaluation (course assignment) in their courses.

The involvement of teachers is ideally assisted by a close wikipedian.

Target groupː

University (high school) teachers

Goal of the activityː

  • Increase community diversity
  • Expand awareness of Wikimedia projects among young people
  • Recognition of Wikimedia platforms as valuable open and free learning source

Medium term goalː

1) Increasing the number of teachers involved

2) Long-term cooperation with teachers

Activity Development Planː

a) Promotion among teachers

b) Teaching tools for teachers

c) Finding a "Wiki friendly school or program" - University/Faculty for long- term cooperation within Wikimedia projects

  • Activities: Addressing future teachers, librarians, IT´s (students), long-term collaboration
  • Teacher support framework - help with using tools - Dashboard, editing - Creating of the environment and conditions that will support them > support package

3. Teach (with) Wiki[edit]

Many active members of the community became wikipedians in their adolescence, so we try to reach out to this target group at a time when they are forming their sense of self and choosing their free time activities.

At the same time, we are raising a generation that will be able to use information from Wikimedia projects in the education process and understand the concept of their free use.

With this idea, we appeal to secondary and elementary school teachers as well as youth workers - the goal is that teachers will create and share these tools themselves for how they creatively teach (with) wiki.

Target groupː

main - teachers of technical and civic education at high and primary schools

secondary - youth workers, youth leaders working with children and youth on regular base, within leisure time activities

Goal of the activityː

  • Expand the use of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in schools
  • Train teachers how to teach (with) Wiki
  • Create positive first experience with using Wiki for learning and education for both, teachers and pupils/students, steer the curiosity and break usual stereotypes

Medium term goalː

Work on building brand/quality label for Teaching (with) Wiki.

Act as stabile knowledge & best practise source - knowledge management and capacity building.

Pilot project with few interested schools - implementation of Teach (with) Wiki into curricula.

Activity Development Planː

a) Finalise new landing page for Teach (with) wiki; well-arranged offer of activities for schools and teachers

b) Establish a collaboration& inspiration section (knowledge & best practise area// greenhouse) - crowdsourcing activity collection, a space for creating and sharing materials by teachers and youth workers themselves

c) Further work with and dissemination of Methodological Guide for Teachers -How to teach (with) Wiki? - pilot is few schools which will implement it with our help

d) Success stories & best practise sharing - collect compendium, story-telling

e) Re - accreditation process for courses

f) PR activities

4. The other EDU activities[edit]

  1. Further support and maintenance of collaboration with trainers - Pool of trainers with diverse competence profile to cover our educational offers (EDU + multimedia + TECH)
  2. Wikiclubs - regular editing meetups of wikipedians - keeping and trying to develop them, support growth and regional coverage
  3. Development of cooperation with experts - methodology, graphics, etc.
  4. Wider (and clearly described) offer for of educational activities for general public, such as: basic course How to edit Wikipedia or targeted thematic editathons
  5. Wider connection with GLAM activities - more clear distribution of competencies in GLAM
  6. Strategic partnerships and cooperations such as KISK (Division of Information and Library Studies) - cooperation within social innovations in libraries
  7. Czech Wikiconference - as the biggest annual activity for Czech community

C. Wikidata & TECH Programs[edit]

Wikidata & TECH is the 3rd program of our chapter, focusing on a growing community of tech-savvy volunteers and Wikidata enthusiasts.

Without employees, we have strategically chosen areas where even volunteer force or minor contracts are enough to make a difference.

Target groupː

technical community

Goal of the activityː

  • Being a functional contact point for important Czech institutions
  • Supporting technical community activities and capacity building within tech-savvy community

Metrics 2020[edit]

METRIC AND RESULTS OVERVIEW A. Multimedia & Community Programs B. EDUcational Programs C. Wikidata & TECH Programs Explanation
1. number of total participants 100 800 EDU: We are positive about reaching such nr. by the end of the 2020 since we are slightly growing in nr. of activities organised within a year and we aim for more activities organised in cooperation/joined or delivered with our support rather then completely by Wikimedia on its own.


Multimedia (Mediagrant+We Photograph Czechia): We have 13 active photographers in MG activity (we have decided not to develop this activity further) and expect 10 active photographers in WPC activity (some people are active in both activities). Multimedia (GLAM): We plan at least 6 editathons in 2020, expected participation is cca 90 persons.

2. number of newly registered users 55 300 EDU: This might be a brave goal to reach, but looking at the currents stats from 2019 for 3/4 of the year, we are optimistic to reach this goal. It is as well slightly above 1/3 of the total expected nr. of participants, which is healthy expectation.


Multimedia (Mediagrant+We Photograph Czechia): 10 new users in 2020

Multimedia (GLAM): if every second participant of editathon was a newcomer, we would have 45 new users in 2020.


3. number of content pages created or improved, across all Wikimedia projects 20000 2800 EDU: Educational programs in general don't necessarily focus on content added, the focus more on creating positive first experience with Wiki activities and possibly positive first user and editing experience, therefore we may have many content which is not finally published or people rather trying first small editions instead creating whole articles etc. Therefore this nr. of created content pages would be find accurate.


Multimedia (Mediagrant+We Photograph Czechia): 10,000 content pages (Nr. consists of new or edited WP, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons pages.).

Multimedia (GLAM): 10,000 content pages (Nr. consists of new WD, WC and new or edited WP pages).


4. Number of active GLAM cooperations 13 40 15 EDU: Universities (8), (high)schools (5), Libraries (10), NGOs (4), Foundations (2), professional networks/guilds (6), Others (5) = combination of current established cooperations + planned newly established cooperation - natural turnover of partners in longterm cooperations.

Multimedia (GLAM): In 2019 we had 8 active cooperations (U.S. Embassy, American center, Embassy od Sweden, Embassy of Canada, Goethe-Institut in Prague, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague City Hall, Prague Zoo). In 2020 another 5 would be nice.

Wikidata/Tech: In 2019 we had 14 active cooperationsː (National Technical Library, National Library, Faculty of Math and Physics, DrobnePamatky database, Krizky a Vetrelci database, University of Palacky in Olomouc, Wikiskripta, TDKIV database, Pamet naroda database, Library database of the National Library, National Heritage Institute, Prazdnedomy database, Bibliography of Czech Lands database, Czechitas)

5. Number of events 10 40 3 EDU: foreseen Training cycle SePW (6 lectures x 6), Training cycle Librarians (3 courses/lectures x 2), Tech (with) Wiki (3x), Wikiclubs (5 cities), festivals/fairs (at least 2), lecturers meet up (2x)

Multimedia (GLAM and Community): Offline events are one of the best ways how to attract newcomers and more events means more newcomers. In 2020 we want to run at least 6 editathons through the year as a part of project supported by US Center in Prague. Neverthelless another types of offline events will probably emerge (WikiTown).

Wikidata/Tech: Wikidata workshops, Wikiskripta lecture

OTHER PROGRAM METRICː A. Multimedia & Community Programs B. EDUcational Programs C. Wikidata & TECH Programs
6. Bytes added (EDU) 2000000 EDU: measuring bytes added from all educational events organised by Wikimedia or in cooperation, except wikiclubs, since Wiki Education Dashboard is not use to measure wikiclubs.
7. New (regional/local) cooperations established (EDU) 7 EDU: covering the goal for regional diversity in programmes and focus on newcomers, newcoming institutions and partnerships will be seeking to establish: 2 new libraries (Seniors programme) in less covered regions, 2 new university cooperations (Students programme), 2 schools piloting Teach (with) Wiki programme, 1 new strategic field cooperation (such as educational ngo etc.)
8. We Photograph Czechia: Number of newly illustrated Wikidata items 2000 To ilustrate WD items is a main purpose of We Photograph Czechia.
9. Number of gained and on Commons uploaded files within the GLAM cooperation 5000
10. Number of GLAM files used on Wikipedia (Total files used) 500 Total number of usage of files gained within GLAM cooperations across Wikimedia projects.
11. Number of GLAM institutions, that response to our contact 12 Our plan is to regularly address the Czech institutions. This number represents nr. of institutions which responded (regardless of their interest). Nr. consists responds to our (WMCZ) contact and contact of volunteers.
