Project Plan



  1. What community or communities will be involved in this movement strategy discussion(s)?
    French speaking Wikimedians, both online and offline participants.
  2. How will you make sure everyone is invited?
  3. How will you document community discussion(s) and feedback related to movement strategy? Who will be responsible for documenting these discussions?
    The documentation will be in parallel with the meeting, through voice interpretation and translation to the participants.
  4. What is your facilitation plan to support productive discussions around movement strategy? Please also provide a link to a Friendly Space Policy that will be implemented to support these discussions.
    Interpretation for French speaking Wikimedians in order to ensure inclusivity in the global community conversation.
