We will have series of discussions about the Movement Strategy Recommendations, this will be made over weekends within the period of December 15, 2022 to January 15, 2023. These discussions will be made effective and productive by putting volunteers into groups to have further discussions about the various Recommendations. They will be assessed in groups to determine their comprehension of the Recommendations. We will explain WMF Friendly Space Policy to the participants and adopt it for this project.
If your activities include the use of paid online tools, please describe what tools these are and how you intend to use them.

After your activities are complete, we would like to understand the draft implementation plan for your community. You will be required to prepare a document detailing this plan around a movement strategy initiative. This report can be prepared through Meta-wiki using the Share your results button on this page.

  • Provide a link to the draft implementation plan document or Wikimedia page

Your draft implementation plan document should address the following questions clearly:

  • What do you expect will happen as a result of your activities? How do those outcomes address the movement strategy initiative?
  • How will you measure or evaluate your activities? What tools or methods will you use to evaluate your activities?

To create a draft implementation plan, we recommend the use of a logic model, which will help you and your team think about goals, activities, outcomes, and other factors in an organized way. Please refer the following resources to develop a logic model:
