The WIKIMOVE Podcast is back with a new episode. In this new episode, we will talk about affiliates – chapters, user groups, thematic orgs – and what their role can be in the movement we imagine for the future. Affiliates represent the Wikimedia movement and support work focused on a specific theme, topic, subject or issue within or across countries and regions. Our guests also share their takes on the draft movement charter!

What’s in this episode? 

Affiliates are the recognized organizations and groups in the Wikimedia movement that support volunteers, advocate for free knowledge and come together as the backbone of the movement. We talk about how Wikimedia’s somewhat ad hoc affiliate landscape has emerged, discuss the relationship between organizations and communities, and imagine what role affiliates can play in a future global council. 

We hear from…

  • Andrew Lih, a movement veteran.
  • Elisabeth Carrera, Wikimedia Norge’s Executive Director
