It is with no doubt that Movement Strategy is very broad, and also touches on many different areas. I also heard some community members saying that Movement Strategy sounds so abstractive, and it is not really clear what is Movement Strategy. I hope that with this space, you would feel comfortable asking all kinds of questions that come to your mind - really, all kinds of questions are welcomed! Even in the case that we may not necessarily have the answer, would be great to know what you care about, and how you would want the Movement Strategy and Governance team to support you. If you have any ideas and thoughts regarding how to support your community to understand and be engaged in Movement Strategy, share with us as well! :grinning:

There are also some specific discussions ongoing at the moment (regarding UCoC, impactful topics in the region, and freedom of panorama.) We would love to learn your view. :slight_smile:

As many of us already know, the ESEAP Conference - hosted by Wikimedia Australia - will take place later this year in Sydney, Australia. Just to share that there is a new Diff blog post having more details about this! :slight_smile:


I feel that funding for underrepresented communities is very relevant to our region. If you also feel this way, would like to invite you to consider reviewing this draft. :grinning:

We have an interesting example of an Innovate in Free Knoweldge initiative project, Wikistories, which is currently being tested out in Indonesian Wikipedia:

The Foundation’s Global Advocacy team held a conversation hour to discuss about the recently released Human Rights Impact Assessment for the Asia-Pacific time zone, where several human rights-related concerns that was shared by the ESEAP communities before are discussed in context of the Impact Assessment’s recommendations (notes from the session).

Do you have anything that you would like to share with the Global Advocacy team regarding the Impact Assessment, the Human Rights Policy, or the state of human rights defense within the Wikimedia movement overall? You can share your thoughts in this thread:

Global Advocacy team is calling for action for countering disinformation. They are launching a public mapping project to collect all initiatives and tools that have been developed at the local level across Wikimedia projects, and make them easily accessible and available to the movement at large. Are you aware of anything relating to this? If you have questions please let @FPutz_WMF know. :grinning:
