Goals of the Education Session[edit]

The education session at WMCON emerged as a need to generate- above all- a network of cooperation between the different education programs around the Wikimedia movement.
Specifically, its main objectives are:

  • Building a network between Affiliates that have education programs
  • Discuss shared successes and challenges around education programs
  • Discuss regarding the education programs and their importance within the strategy of the movement

These objectives will be worked through the following questions:

  1. What are possible future evolution of education programs?
  2. How do education programs fit in the strategy?
  3. How do they contribute to growth of the Wikimedia movement?
  4. How can Education Programs enable the participation of the next generation of editors?
