Dear African Wikimedians,

Making Wikimedia events a friendly, welcoming environment in which all users can interact fruitfully, learn from each other and inspire each other, is a goal we all share. The Wikimedia Foundation currently is looking into supporting this goal with an improved Friendly space policy, specifically tailored to our big international events. We will build the policy in a way that it will also serve as a minimal standard for all Foundation supported events.

We do not want to build this new policy without input, ideas or comments from the African community as well. Please visit the consultation page on meta [1], leave your input and spread the word to other Wikimedians! You are very welcome to leave ideas and comments in other languages than English, please use the language you feel comfortable expressing yourself.

We are also looking for help in translating the consultation page and also this message. So if you could help with this or spread the word we need help translating, we will also be grateful!

Of course you are also welcome to come back to us via email with any questions you have.

Hoping to hear from you on Meta,



Samuel Guebo
Trust and Safety Specialist
