Our strategic direction: Service and Equity[edit | edit source]

By 2030, Wikimedia will become the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge, and anyone who shares our vision will be able to join us.

We, the Wikimedia contributors, communities, and organizations, will advance our world by collecting knowledge that fully represents human diversity, and by building the services and structures that enable others to do the same.

We will carry on our mission of developing content as we have done in the past, and we will go further.

Knowledge as a service: To serve our users, we will become a platform that serves open knowledge to the world across interfaces and communities. We will build tools for allies and partners to organize and exchange free knowledge beyond Wikimedia. Our infrastructure will enable us and others to collect and use different forms of free, trusted knowledge.

Knowledge equity: As a social movement, we will focus our efforts on the knowledge and communities that have been left out by structures of power and privilege. We will welcome people from every background to build strong and diverse communities. We will break down the social, political, and technical barriers preventing people from accessing and contributing to free knowledge.

Building Wikimedia's future together[edit | edit source]

What does the Strategic Direction entail for the Wikimedia affiliates, communities, and our broader ecosystem? What structural changes are needed for us to follow the set direction, taking our global, regional as well as local contexts into consideration? The first step of the Movement Strategy process in 2018 took place at the Wikimedia Conference 2018. By now, Working Groups are being established from a broad range of stakeholders, and will formulate recommendations in consultation with the movement.
