Increased awareness about the Wikimedia Movement
In order to increase the Sustainability of Our Movement, we should increase awareness about it and its work. This includes, for example, creating videos or organizing campaigns to introduce the Wikimedia projects to new audiences and groups. This will ensure the sustainability of interest in the movement from people like readers, partner organizations and donors, as well as bringing new volunteers.
Increase awareness about the Wikimedia Movement, its values, achievements, projects, and communities worldwide – to secure the attention, trust, and interest of knowledge consumers, volunteers, partners, and donors.—
Join or start a discussion on Meta or the "Increase the Sustainability of Our Movement" space of the Movement Strategy Forum.
