Purpose and principles

Our goal is to facilitate a year-long, community-driven, strategic planning process that lays out a five-year course of action for the Wikimedia community and stakeholders.

Our principles for facilitating this process:

  • Empower our community and stakeholders to participate.
  • Be transparent.
  • Collaborate, and encourage collaboration.
  • Approach this as a learning process.
  • Model. Operate on a small-scale as we hope the community will operate on a large-scale.

See also our Community guidelines, which we hope embody these principles.
