Wikimedians for Sustainable Development

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Our draft logo (see vote for permanent logo).
The Sustainable Development Goals were the theme of Wikimania 2019 but the engagement of Wikimedians goes back much further and continues in multiple ways that are continuously developing


This page helps bring together Wikimedians engaged in matters of sustainable development.


The Wikimedians interested in sustainable development are spread geographically, and will benefit from a stronger sense of community and support. A user group creates an established Wikimedia community, but it will still remain a lightweight non-organization. This way, ideas can more easily be matured in collaboration and brought forward in the Wikimedia movement.


The group will work on all topics related to sustainable development, including in particular the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals). The user group is a cross-project, cross-language and transnational group that welcomes and supports contributions to all Wikimedia projects. We aim to partner with organizations that are actively working towards a world with sustainable development whether they are NGO's, academic institutions, public bodies of different levels or even perhaps companies in order to create, collect and curate knowledge.
