Software Collaboration for Wikidata
Goal of the Project
Wikimedia Deutschland is starting a project to bring forward the movement strategy initiatives, in particular the Movement Recommendation “Invest in Skills and Leadership Development”, "Equity in Decision-Making" and “Increase the Sustainability of Our Movement”.
Together with partners from the Wikimedia Movement we want to create a prototype of a collaboration with the purpose of enabling them to contribute to the software development of Wikidata and Wikibase in a sustainable and scalable way. We want to create a long term, sustainable environment for the lexicographical data part of Wikidata with local community groups that are connected to under-resourced and/or under-represented languages.
We believe that following the recommendations of our movement strategy will strengthen the whole movement and bring us further to a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
