We will build relationships with a wide variety of organizations dedicated to the ideals of free knowledge. Wikimedia communities will work with allies that they didn’t know they had. Our content and technology will become a central part of formal and informal education around the world. We will partner with leading institutions in education, arts, entertainment, civil society, government, science, and technology. Together, we will invite a new generation of people who learn, create, and care for a growing library of free knowledge for all.
