Wikimedia 2030 Movement Strategy has been an open and participatory process. While supported by Wikimedia Foundation staff, Strategy has been based on a series of movement-wide consultations and high volunteer participation. In its first phase, over 1,800 statements from about one hundred communities were combined to create the Strategic Direction. In its second phase, more than a hundred volunteers, from various communities and affiliates, created together the recommendations and principles, informed by extensive movement feedback.
The process aims for even more openness and participation across the movement to shape our future, especially from project communities and underrepresented groups. In late 2020, a diverse groups of Wikimedians, with on-wiki engagement and guidance, created an outline for the online transition events. Later, hundreds of Wikimedians from diverse backgrounds joined the Global Conversations to prioritize the recommendations and initiatives. In the upcoming implementation phase, you are also invited to take part in discussions of next steps, for which further details will be provided soon.
