This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2023.


Movement Charter Conversations



Type of session:



[Note: This is a placeholder on behalf of the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC); session details to be confirmed]. The first three draft chapters of the Movement Charter – Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intent statement) – were shared in November 2022, inspiring conversations and feedback from around the movement. These drafts were revised based on the input collected from the communities in late 2022 and shared on Meta.

In July/August 2023, the MCDC shared the next three chapters of the charter: the Global Council, Hubs, Roles & Responsibilities. A glossary was also shared. Community conversations on these chapters will take place from July to September 2023.

Since the Movement Charter will impact all movement stakeholders, it is vital that all communities are engaged in the conversations on the content of the Charter. This session will be an opportunity to engage with the vibrant community of the Wikimedia Movement in Canada, US, Mexico, and the Caribbean, shed light on their work, and provide a platform for community members to discuss directly with MCDC members and impact the content and trajectory of the work.
