Fit to strategy
As stated in WMF Strategy for 2015, Global South is one of the main priorities, not only to increase the access from development countries, but also to increase the number of contributions from a Southern Perspective. Our yearly plan as one of the oldest chapters in South America, will focus in both topics: increasing the number of participants, contributors and readers from our country and region specially considering the idea of reaching other cities (not only Buenos Aires). Federalisation is one of our main goals for year 2012. Our Iberoamerican Initiative is oriented in this same way.
If WMF wants to have a 25% of women contributing to the projects for 2015, we consider that a comprehensive gender strategy is needed. That's why we are adding gender perspective to all our main projects, including our education agenda.
Our plan will focus on: Increasing reach and participation (by working in a gender dimension, federalisation, cooperation with our regional partners and other sister organisations like Creative Commons, Vía Libre, librarians, media, etc), quality (by reaching the educational field, coordinating with education authorities and GLAM Institutions), and organisational development as well.
Federalization: increase the participation of Wikimedia members outside of Buenos Aires by 20%
- Produce two events in two cities outside of Buenos Aires to strengthen the participation of Wikimedia members in the rest of the country in the projects. These events could be edition workshops and marathons. Both events will include gender perspective and copyright issues.
