Wikipedia 20/Global event

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Join us for a global virtual birthday party for our communities on January 15th from 16.00-17.00 UTC! We will be livestreaming this event on YouTube as we get together to celebrate all of the volunteers and community members who have built this movement over the last 20 years. This event is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation and is meant to be a kickoff for all community celebrations around the world!

Our celebration will include remarks from community members about how they have seen the movement grow over the 20 years and their wishes for the future, as well as from the founder of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales and the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation Katherine Maher.
