As many of you will be aware, this year has seen a lot of work across the
global Wikimedia movement to develop a new strategy to 2030. A draft
strategic direction was shared in August and discussed extensively by
participants at Wikimania, and a newly articulated direction was published
recently. As a member of the Wikimedia community the Foundation and the
strategy team are keen to get your feedback so please do take a look at the
strategy in its current form:
The Wikimedia UK board discussed the draft at a recent meeting and I have
added comments to the talk page suggesting that education should be added
to the statement of direction.
My understanding is that a final version of the strategic direction will be
created and shared around the end of this month, and then the Foundation is
hoping that as many individuals and groups as possible will endorse the
strategy during October.
