Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20/Transition/Global ConversationsEdit
The Movement Strategy “Global Conversations” will happen in two sets, November 21 and 22, and December 5 and 6. Each set of events will be held twice to accommodate different time zones, one better accommodating participation from East Asia and the other from the Americas. Wikimedians from Europe and Africa will be able to attend either. We wanted to accommodate timezones in a way that multiple regions could join at any given time so we could make new connections between regions and groups. The difference between the two sets of events is as follows:
November 21/22: The focus will be to look at local, organizational, and regional priorities already identified to begin to create a global plan for implementation. It aspires to create alignment on a global level. December 5/6: The second set will start looking at specific actions around the defined priorities. This is also the time for “lightning talks” or “pitches” from different communities, affiliates and teams at the Wikimedia Foundation. This would be a great opportunity if you want to connect your work to the wider Wikimedia movement.

The 2021 Community Wishlist Survey is now open! This survey is the process where communities decide what the Community Tech team should work on over the next year. We encourage everyone to submit proposals until the deadline on 30 November, or comment on other proposals to help make them better. The communities will vote on the proposals between 8 December and 21 December.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. You can write proposals in any language, and we will translate them for you. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your proposals!

We invite all registered users to vote on the 2021 Community Wishlist Survey. You can vote from now until 21 December for as many different wishes as you want.
In the Survey, wishes for new and improved tools for experienced editors are collected. After the voting, we will do our best to grant your wishes. We will start with the most popular ones.
We, the Community Tech, are one of the Wikimedia Foundation teams. We create and improve editing and wiki moderation tools. What we work on is decided based on results of the Community Wishlist Survey. Once a year, you can submit wishes. After two weeks, you can vote on the ones that you're most interested in. Next, we choose wishes from the survey to work on. Some of the wishes may be granted by volunteer developers or other teams.
We are waiting for your votes. Thank you!
