Choose Your Top Priorities Why is it prioritized?
Example: recommendation 2, improve user experience Example: Having a more engaging interface will excite more people from our community to want to contribute to Wikimedia projects.
Provide for Safety and Inclusion The significant changes in Hong Kong's legal environment means that safety becomes a top priority for the entire user group. Even prior to 2019 our group made great efforts to enact its own Safe Space Policy, ensuring that all contributors are welcome.
Increase the Sustainability of Our Movement The said changes in the legal environment made it more difficult to retain contributors of all groups, and this is without including the impact of COVID-19. We will do our best to find successful methods to keep sustainability in the Hong Kong Wikimedia movement. Even prior to COVID and the legal changes there had been difficulty in recruiting volunteers for the project.
