To support the drafting of our movement-wide strategic direction, the movement strategy team has formed a drafting committee of individuals from across our movement. We are working together through August to consider what we’ve learned from our global dialogue and research and to identify what we want to achieve together as a movement by 2030. Our draft will be open to the community for feedback and suggestions in August.


Synthesize input and collaboratively draft a movement-wide strategic direction that our community will support and that meets the needs of those not yet in our movement.


Draft the direction in collaboration with representatives of our key audiences (organized groups, contributors, readers, partners and experts from regions where we are well used and those where we are not).

Committee member responsibilities[edit]

  • Provide input on the strategic direction for the Wikimedia movement (what do we want to achieve together by 2030?), based on findings from community discussions and research.
  • Think beyond your track and as a representative of the broader movement.
  • Review, revise, and provide feedback on drafts (comments, track changes, draft sections, and/or in-person or emailed feedback)


A subset of the committee will incorporate committee's input into a draft direction document, which will be shared with the broader community prior to Wikimania and finalized by the end of August.
