Thank you for the report Mariana.
Decolonising Wikidata was one of the high points of 2021 Wikimedia vectors.
This looks impressive, inspirational and I hope we catch up soon as we did
in 2021 for CEE Spring special session.
Super curious over State of the Internet's Languages - there is so much to
update there from language policies. They shaped discrepancies of Wikipedia
instances and set the tone for much of interaction with top down language
norms to bottom up communities.

Please find the report here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/
We recognize that 2021 was a year to build up resilience after all that
2020 brought to us and our communities. Even though we continued to face
the effects of Covid-19, and of other intersecting pandemics of racism,
patriarchy, and the climate crisis, we also started to get our strength
back and to embrace the future with joy and hope:
- Whose Knowledge? celebrated five mighty years of its existence in Sep
2021 with a special social media campaign.
- WK? incorporated in the State of CA, as a public benefit corporation in
June 2021. We have worked with our esteemed Board in the last few months as
well, to move WK? in the direction of its mission.
- The #VisibleWikiWomen campaign 2021 brought over 1700 images to
Wikimedia Commons, illustrating pages in 38 different Wikipedia languages.
- We have successfully designed and developed a fully tailored website
that will present the State of the Internet's Languages report to our wide
audience in a user-friendly manner.
- We hosted a multilingual event on Decolonising Structured Data as a
pre-WikidataCon event and we did a keynote at WikidataCon itself.
You can learn more about our activities, access the materials and
resources created, and see photos and presentations in the full report.
In the next few weeks we will be sharing a multilingual, accessible and
multimedia website for the State of the Internet's Languages, and we will
launch our next #VisibleWikiWomen campaign. Stay tuned through our website (
