Question 343 (GR10)

The Wikimedia Foundation is interested in more partnerships with public or governmental institutions. These include Ministries of Education and Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and others. To become a partner, public sector institutions must share our values, mission, and ethics.

Public and governmental institutions often play a major role in shaping a country's education. For example, they can promote technology adoption to underserved segments of the population. The Foundation could work with these partners to include Wikimedia projects in ongoing public sector efforts. This will help the movement increase the reach and awareness of Wikimedia projects. Often, government partnerships can reach a larger number of people than other kinds of partnerships.

To what extent do you support or oppose this kind of partnership?
