About this image


Nine Wikimedia 2030 working groups have developed sets of recommendations for structural changes that will enable the movement to successfully advance in its strategic direction. The goal of harmonization sprint is to converge these nine sets of recommendations into one coherent set. During the event, higher level groups of recommendations covering multiple thematic areas will be formed, and plans will be collaboratively set for how to further develop these new groups or clusters, in consultation with different movement stakeholders.


Amongst the thematic area recommendations, there are many overlaps and synergies, as well as gaps. However, they collectively strive to reach for the equity, inclusivity, diversity, transformation, and updated structures that align us with our Movement's strategic direction. The harmonization sprint presents a chance to bring these recommendations together and form new crosscutting groups of recommendations that can be further developed and later implemented.

What is next

Sprint participants and other working group members will continue to work on the newly-formed clusters or groups of recommendations, consult widely with diverse stakeholders, and aim to present to the Wikimedia Foundation Board and the movement a coherent set of recommendations, which will be collaboratively implemented over the coming months and years.


The Sprint will take place in El Mouradi Gammarth, Les côtes de Carthage, Tunis, Tunisia.
