Knowledge Equity Calendar

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
“Knowledge Equity Calendar”
24 stories of Wikimedians working towards Knowledge Equity

Back in 2017, the Wikimedia Movement agreed on its Strategic Direction with its core goal to be the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge until 2030. One priority to achieve this goal is called "Knowledge Equity" (As a social movement, we will focus our efforts on the knowledge and communities that have been left out by structures of power and privilege. We will welcome people from every background to build strong and diverse communities. We will break down the social, political, and technical barriers preventing people from accessing and contributing to free knowledge.). But what does that mean in your context? What are others already doing to translate “Knowledge Equity” from the strategic to the programmatic level?

In the light of the last days and weeks of the year, we at Wikimedia Deutschland, adapted the German tradition of the “Advent calendar” counting the days towards Christmas (December 1 to 24), and shared one story per day on how Wikimedians are working towards achieving Knowledge Equity in their respective context. The idea is mainly to inspire Wikimedians what other Wikimedians are already doing. Happy reading and sharing!

One story per day

From December 1 to 24, we shared one story per day how Wikimedians around the world are working towards Knowledge Equity in their context.
