Step 1: Learn more before you begin[edit]

Strategy briefing[edit]

This document provides an initial overview of potential topics that may come up across various strategy conversations in terms of our movement and the future. It will be updated and improved as better information emerges from research and discussions. Here you can learn more about:

  • Upcoming trends on population, education, and technology
  • Our movement and ecosystem: who we are today
  • How we are evolving as a movement (trends in contribution, content, and readership)

Step 2: Discuss our future[edit]

One big question[edit]

Our goal as a movement is to identify a direction that aligns and inspires us all on our path to 2030. It will help us better organize and prioritize our activities across the movement, and it will be flexible enough that it applies broadly over time.

The big question that we seek to answer is the following:

What do we want to build or achieve together over the next 15 years?

Next steps: Synthesis and cycles of discussion[edit]

Summaries & sharing of information[edit]

The discussions will be continuously summarized and sorted by topic. The major points of discussion will be shared across wikis to make it easier to know what others are thinking across the movement.

Timeline and process[edit]

We are currently in the first cycle of discussion. There will be two other cycles that you may join. In the next cycles, we will try to converge on the direction and focus areas by August 2017.
