Hubs/Workshop November 27, 2021

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation will host a co-creation workshop on the concept of Hubs on November 27, 2021.

Workshop details

Video by Asaf Bartov on important questions around the concept of "Regional and Thematic Hubs" (November 2021, the subtitles as one wiki text page.)
One page brief for the context of the hubs and the workshop. (As a wiki text page.)

Goal: The overall goal of the event is convergence and alignment regarding the concept of hubs and principles for the development of hubs. The idea is to convene community members on the topic of hubs, to reach an initial definition of regional and thematic hubs and clarify essential questions on the concept of hubs (e.g. scope, responsibilities, connection to existing entities, and hub life cycle).

Date + Time: 13:00 to 16:00 UTC, November 27, 2021 (your timezone).

Program: Short program (schedule) see below. We will use the Co-creation method to work on purpose and definition of hubs.

Simultaneous interpretation: French only.

Registration: Closed on November 25.
