Wikimedia Summit 2020

Wikimedia Summit 2020 – formerly known as "Wikimedia Conference" or "Chapters Meeting" – will take place in Berlin from April 3 to 5, 2020.
The Wikimedia Summit will be a focused event for conversations on Movement Strategy for the Wikimedia Foundation and its affiliates. A conference that carries the conversations from the movement strategy process further into the future, and is constantly developed along with the structural changes that will also support the organized part of the movement to successfully implement the strategic direction in programmatic work.
In spring 2020, the recommendations for change will be finalized and we will have clarity on how to adapt to move strongly and successfully in the movement’s Strategic Direction. The Wikimedia Summit 2020 will be an important transition away from strategy development and into the long awaited implementation of the recommended changes. The event will first aim to create clarity and shared understanding of the recommendations, and then initiate the implementation across movement organizations in a collaborative way. The main part of that conversation is to discuss prioritization and sequencing of the recommendations, and agree upon responsibilities in bringing each recommendation to life – globally, regionally, and on the local level. This will have to be a deeply collaborative process, engaging all parts of the movement together.
The event is hosted and organized by Wikimedia Deutschland, and generously supported by the Wikimedia Foundation.
