We have exciting news to share about Movement Strategy.
We are inviting communities and affiliates to host virtual workshops in
September and October to discuss what priorities from the Movement Strategy
recommendations matter most to them for implementation in 2021 .
Over the past two years, the Wikimedia movement has come together to create
the recommendations . There are 10 recommendations and close to 50
recommended changes and actions or initiatives . Not everything can be
implemented at once. We need to prioritize what ideas matter where and to
whom to create a movement-wide implementation plan.
In July and August, a diverse group of 18 Wikimedians  - nominated by
their peers and communities - came together to design the way for
co-creating an implementation plan for Strategy . Many thanks to
community members who further enriched these discussions and helped us
improve the plan.
*== Overview of the transition to implementation ==*
The goal is to create an 18-month implementation plan presenting
prioritized and sequenced initiatives that we will start working on first.
This implementation plan will include flow and timeline for key actions as
well as responsibilities and financing needs. This is the first step
together in implementing our 10 year strategy. It will help us put the
foundations in place that we’ll build on together, and make sure we have
the people, resources, and structures we need to be successful.
To get to this plan, we need to have discussions at the local level and in
our communities regarding priorities and energy for implementation. There
is also the need for thematic discussions and movement-wide alignment, for
which events will be convened in late October and November. Afterwards,
there will be local and regional follow-up events to discuss decisions,
raise awareness, and create clarity for the next steps to put the
implementation plan into action in 2021.
For more information please consult the one page overview for transition
*== Getting started - prioritization workshops ==*
We will start with community- and affiliate-led preparation and
prioritization. The Movement Strategy recommends local communities have
opportunities to shape decisions directly, and the Design Group took this
into account in their planning. These events are meant to be light and will
highlight priorities for implementation that matter locally, regionally,
We invite communities and affiliates to host virtual events to determine
their priorities for implementation. The Support Team will provide guidance
for the events as well as a reporting template to complete. Facilitation
and documentation - and depending on context, translation and
interpretation - are required to ensure everyone is heard, people feel safe
and welcomed to contribute, and relevant information is captured. To get us
started, some regional, language, and thematic events have been suggested
by the Design Group, and we would love to see more! 
The spirit of implementation is one of collaboration and experimentation.
We encourage project and online communities to see what ideas in the
recommendations they can experiment with to address knowledge equity and
knowledge as a service, and to reach our strategic direction .
For more information please consult this one page overview of
prioritization events .
== The next steps: ==
September and October 2020: Think local and regional. Discuss with your
community your priorities for implementation in 2021.
November: Let’s talk global. Cross-cutting thematic discussions and
global events will bring us together to plan the way forward.
There will be concurrent on-wiki engagement and options for asynchronous
December: An implementation plan for the first 18 months of
implementation will be co-created based on overlap of priorities.
January 2021: The implementation plan will be used to globally
coordinate some aspects of implementation while at the same time, local
regional experiments can unfold
For now, indicate on our talk page if you will be hosting a prioritization
event in September and October . We will be sharing out the reporting
template and guidance for the events very soon. Please add us to your
watchlist . You can also send us an email at <
with your interest or if you have any questions or comments.
We are excited to be kicking off the implementation process with you and
look forward to lively discussions.
On behalf of the Support Team,
