Probably all the activities that are done within the Wikimedia movement are related to the Global Goals in one way or another. Being able to describe which of the goals they relate to and how can be of a great value. It can help the actual activity better and also make it easier to communicate the value of the activity for a wider audience.
This will be a workshop to finalize a guide for activity organizers on how they can map their efforts towards the SDGs and, conversely, how SDGs can be mapped to Wikimedia activities. There will be need for documentation on how to use it and templates on how it can communicated. The workshop will discuss areas that have been problematic and that need input.
This session will address the conference theme — Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals — in the following manner:
This is sort of a meta session, since it will address all 17 SDGs.
At the end of the session, the following will have been achieved:
At the end of the session, we hope to have a process that is almost ready to use. All participants should also be familiar enough with the material to be able to start using it immediately.
Each Space at Wikimania 2019 will have specific format requests. The program design prioritises submissions which are future-oriented and directly engage the audience. The format of this submission is a:
- Workshop to identify and try to solve problem. It will have a remote component that allows to engage with the workshop topic and materials before, during and after the workshop.
The session will work best with these conditions:
- Room: This session will need a projector and screen
- Audience: This session should probably not be too big. 30-40 people is probably best. Any Wikimedians that ever had, or are planning, to organize any activity, small or large, would benefit of participating in this session.
- Recording: The introduction could be recorded and live streamed. That will make it easier for remote participants to join in editing online during the session, which could be done in an Etherpad document.
