Shared Knowledge (Macedonian: Споделено знаење, transliterated: Spodeleno znaenje) is an organisation of Wikimedians established in March 2014 with the main goal to run mission-aligned initiatives and projects on the territory of Macedonia. It consists of community members and former members of Wikimedia Macedonia, and its establishing was officially supported by the community when it voted no confidence to the current Wikimedia Macedonia. However, the organisation is currently negotiating to get official approval by the Wikimedia Foundation as an official local chapter that will replace the current one, and plan to change the name into "Wikimedia Macedonia" once the Wikimedia Foundation revokes it from the current chapter and gives that right to this organisation.

Therewith the application it is necessary to submit a copy of ID card or other document for identification on the official address of the organisation, ul. Šidska 68a, Gjorče Petrov, Skopje.
