From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Date Topic Links
May 13, 2024, 14:00 UTC Annual Planning – Spanish/Latin America


  • Intro to Future Audiences – what it is and why WMF is doing it (10 min)
  • Discussion: LATAM-specific traffic trends: Look at Wikimedia Foundation Annual Plan/2023-2024/Reports/Core Metrics Q2/Appendix#By user region together and discuss: what may be contributing to traffic declines in Latin America? What different factors may be at play (for example: country-specific, audience-specific, demographic, technological, other)? How aware are communities of these trends and has there been any discussion/proposed actions? What could be a good next step to continue this discussion with the broader Spanish and Portuguese communities? (30 min)
  • Other important trends to think about/discuss as a movement (i.e., what's happening in related sectors – i.e., education; digital literacy; advocacy, etc.) (10 min)
  • Interpretation in Spanish, but anyone is welcome. We are also looking into interpretation in Portuguese.
