What is the Wikimedia Foundation doing for Wikipedia 20?

We want to use this anniversary as a celebration of the 20 years that have brought us here, and share in the anticipation of what’s to come. We are celebrating how humans made Wikipedia what it is, and only humans can help sustain and grow it. We are celebrating 20 years human!

When is this taking place?

The 20th birthday celebrations will begin in January 2021 and continue throughout the year 2021 with different activities and a single, unifying theme: “20 Years Human”.

What is the objective?

Increase the public’s support for our movement by changing the perception of Wikipedia from being seen as a website, to a part of the larger movement, and celebrate how humans made Wikipedia what it is.  

What is being developed and when? (work in progress)
