Wikimédia Magyarország/2013 Programme Plan

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


This page presents Wikimedia Hungary's programme plan and associated budget for the year 2013. This plan only includes programmes that specifically require funding; further programmes may be carried out based on the initiative of our members, utilizing our existing reserves, IT infrastructure, the office to be opened, and the support of our staff member.

The programme plan is based on strategic priorities identified during strategic planning workshops held in 2012 under a pilot project of the Wikimedia Foundation. The plan was developed through consultation with members, a planning workshop on 18 August and a board meeting on 25 September. It will be discussed, possibly amended and approved at the General Assembly held at the end of November.



The total budget for 2013 is 16 845 000 HUF, which is distributed among the various strategic objectives as shown on the pie-charts. All amounts are in Hungarian forints, amounts in US dollars are only for informational purposes.
