Wikimedia Summit 2024

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

What to expect?[edit]

The Wikimedia Summit is the place for Affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation to come together to discuss the future of the Wikimedia Movement. The Wikimedia Summit 2024 will focus on how the Movement is governed: how and at what level we make decisions about money, technology, strategy, and affiliates, and how that is written in the movement charter.

This year, an engagement process composed of a series of online events will be introduced to prepare the work that will happen in Berlin and enable everyone to meaningfully participate during the Wikimedia Summit. Therefore, participation in one of the first online sessions happening in August/September 2023 is a condition to attend the Summit in Berlin.
