After the success of last year’s Wikimedia Summit, we are delighted to share that the next Wikimedia Summit will take place again in Berlin on April 19-21, 2024.
This event will be the opportunity for Affiliates from across the globe and the Wikimedia Foundation to come together, connect, and engage around how our Movement is governed. It will be the last Summit of its kind – so let’s make it memorable and use it as a platform to grow together as a Movement, moving towards our Strategic Direction 2030. This can only be achieved with your engagement and participation.
What to expect at the Summit?
The Summit is the place for Affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation to come together to discuss the future of the Wikimedia Movement. The Wikimedia Summit 2024 will focus on how the Movement is governed and build upon the conversations from the Summit in 2022: how and at what level we make decisions about money, technology, strategy, and affiliates, and how that is written in the movement charter. The precise approach will be defined in collaboration with participants and with the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) as they approach the completion of their work to reflect all needs.
How to participate?
This year, an engagement process composed of a series of online events will be introduced to prepare the work that will happen in Berlin and enable everyone to meaningfully participate during the Summit. Therefore, participation in one of the first online sessions happening in August/September 2023 is a condition to attend the Summit in Berlin. Further information around eligibility and registration can be found on the event’s Meta page. Please note that the affiliate’s compliance with reporting (per WAD portal) is a pre-condition for eligibility.
Given the program focus on governance, people from Affiliates interested in attending the Wikimedia Summit 2024 are encouraged to also engage with Movement Governance and the charter drafts in the upcoming MCDC community consultations and at Wikimania in order to help in preparing the best drafts for review.
Who are the organizers?
Wikimedia Deutschland will be hosting the Summit and the online engagement sessions in close collaboration and with the financial support of the Wikimedia Foundation. You can direct your questions to the organizing team at email@example.com.
