Hi everyone,

Close to  250 people participated in virtual Global Conversations that took
place on November 21 and 22. The discussion continues on December 5 and 6
and we warmly invite you to take part. Registration is open until December
4. [1]

What happened already

Nearly 50 communities and affiliates shared their priorities in advance and
can continue to do so. [2] Based on those priorities, the first set of
events on Nov. 21+22 took discussions further by asking Wikimedians from
around the world which of the 45 Movement Strategy initiatives are most
important to globally coordinate and start implementing in 2021. For some
of the initiatives, implementation means further discussions and scoping.
Take a look at the results. [3] What do you think about the priorities?
What is missing? What would make you want to play an active role in

Coordination will vary from one initiative to another. Some can be
implemented on their own, some will involve diverse communities and
affiliates of different sizes working together, and others may require
support from the Wikimedia Foundation.

What happens next

During the next set of discussions on December 5 and 6, we will focus on
the top global priorities and start discussing what implementation can
actually look like. What are the steps needed to put Strategy into action?
Everyone’s invited to help enrich these conversations. Since implementation
will be different from one context to another, we need as many voices as
possible included to create a movement-wide implementation plan.

Based on the feedback, we would like to continue the great momentum of the
first set of events and will provide social opportunities for Wikimedians
to connect. We will also provide space to hold short lightning talks [4] on
how to implement certain initiatives. If you have ideas, please share them
with others.

If you are unable to attend, we will share the results and raw data on Meta
so we can still benefit from your input.

What is provided

As for the first set of events, we will provide live interpretation in
Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Russian, and Spanish. In the
registration form, please let us know if you require language support as
well as internet data package upgrade or childcare for the duration of the

Familiarize yourself with the initiatives already prioritized, register
early, and continue the conversation on December 5 and 6. See you there.

On behalf of the Support Team,
