Wikimedia Summit 2024/Topic groups

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The working groups will generate outputs* on their topics. The organizers have formed the working groups based on the participants preferences and made some adjustements to increase the plurality of perspectives in each group. The participants will be assigned to a group for the first 1.5 days, and have the possibility to change groups later on. The full program can be found here.

*Outputs may take different forms, including:

  • Celebration of the Movement Charter (Great! We like it!);
  • Suggestion or improvements (would like this to be changed but can live with it if it’s not; something to consider);
  • Deal-breakers and alternative language (as per MCDC request, things that would keep us from voting for the charter)
  • Considerations outside or beyond the charter text (such as input into implementation, for supplementary documentation, or things entirely not covered by charter)
