Working and convening remotely

Since 2001, the Wikimedia movement has been developing methods to work and convene remotely. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, the need for these skills has increased well beyond Wikimedia and the need within Wikimedia is increasingly important. This portal has been created to provide a space to share tips and learn from each other on how to work and conduct meetings or gathering online.
