Wikimedia Conference 2018/Program/32
32. Keeping our enemies closer
- Length (min)
- Audience / Targetgroup
Wikimedians working on partnerships
- Session Format
Three short stories followed by a discussion
Our movement has an amazing track record in working (and fighting) with groups and organisations we have similar objectives with. If Wikimedia is to really break down the social, political, and technical barriers preventing people from accessing and contributing to free knowledge, we will also have to start working with organisations and groups we currently disagree with.
- Desired Outcome
More Wikimedians look for partnerships outside of the “usual-suspects” list.
- Next Steps and Milestones
At least three chapters/user-groups/individuals reach out to an organisation they normally disagree with and at least one of these contacts leads to a joint action.
