Abstract (up to 100 words)
CEE Meeting 2021 - presentation "Who governs the Wikimedia Movement"

2022 will be the year of drafting the charter of the Wikimedia Movement. Negotiations and big decisions will shape the movement and your work as Wikimedians for decades to come: Will the global council be an advisory body or a governing body? What will it govern? Will there be a new international organization as well? Who will make decisions in the future about money, technology, policy? How will communities, contributors and affiliates have a say? What will be the role and the power of regional hubs? Will we be able to make decisions and manage funds at the local and regional levels?

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Attendees will have a good idea of what is at stake in the upcoming drafting of the movement charter, an understanding of the big questions, and possible answers, and of ways to be involved in governance reform without it eating your life and keeping you from editing.

Do you plan to pre-record a video with a presentation?
