The User Group Wikimedians for Sustainable Development helps bring together Wikimedians engaged in matters of sustainable development, be they individuals or involved with any of the Wikimedia movement affiliates. The group's focus includes work on all topics related to sustainable development, including in particular the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals were the theme of Wikimania 2019. The engagement of Wikimedians with sustainable development goes back much further and continues in multiple ways that are continuously developing
Michael Peter Edson giving the keynote speech at Wikimania 2019 with an ask about the Sustainable Development Goals to the Wikimedia movement.

AboutEdit

Why?Edit

The Wikimedians interested in sustainable development are spread geographically, and will benefit from a stronger sense of community and support. As a user group we can establish a Wikimedia community around the topic, but still remain a lightweight non-organization. This way, ideas can more easily be matured in collaboration and brought forward in the Wikimedia movement.

ObjectivesEdit

The group's focus includes work on all topics related to sustainable development, including in particular the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals). The user group is a cross-project, cross-language and transnational group that welcomes and supports contributions to all Wikimedia projects. We aim to partner with organizations that are actively working towards a world with sustainable development whether they are NGO's, academic institutions, public bodies of different levels or even perhaps companies in order to create, collect and curate knowledge.

Sustainable Development GoalsEdit

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are part of a UN Resolution called the "2030 Agenda".

SDG inline templateEdit

Participants of User Group Wikimedians for Sustainable Development are encouraged to use in user group pages and discussions the template {{SDG inline}} which creates pictures inline of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) icons. Each icon links to the undp.org page for that goal.

Examples:

  • Discussion about a clean water initiative   
wikicode: {{SDG inline|sdg_6=1}}
  • Discussion about a clean energy and sustainable cities initiative     
wikicode: {{SDG inline|sdg_7=1|sdg_11=1}}
  • Discussion about sustainability in general  
wikicode: {{SDG inline|sdg_all=1}}

For more information about SDGs icons use guidelines, please read the official document "Guidelines for the use of the SDG logo including the colour wheel, and 17 icons".
