  • Narrate your plan in details:

Despite a challenging and unprecedented 2020, we came together to discuss what initiatives from the recommendations should be prioritized in 2021 and began identifying steps to put those initiatives into action. At the Global Conversations in November, community members from around the world further discussed those priorities to select the most important ones to work on in 2021. Together we identified 8 sets of initiatives from the recommendations. At the Global Conversations in December [5], on wiki, and at community events since, Wikimedians are discussing the next steps for implementing the top initiatives.

This event will be an opportunity to discuss with communities in and from South Asia which initiatives are most relevant for their work. The aim would be to identify opportunities to experiment with different ideas in the region and to partner in implementation.


  • Any support you need:

Coordination around participant, outreach, and language support as per need.

  • How will this session be beneficial for the communities in India?:

The only way to identify what initiatives are most relevant in South Asia and India would be to engage with the communities. Attendees will hopefully walk away from learning exactly how to contribute to the implementation of various initiatives from the recommendations. This event will be focused on specific tasks for 2021, creating partnerships with affiliates and groups of various sizes and the Wikimedia Foundation.
