Kannika Thaimai, Program Lead, Wikimedia Germany
Abstract[edit | edit source]
Social and technical innovations are crucial in mastering the challenges of becoming a movement that includes all voices and co-creates knowledge with under-represented communities. But how to innovate in free knowledge? This session will introduce the UNLOCK Accelerator – a structured program that supports project teams (from the Wikimedia movement and beyond) in turning their ideas into prototypes. In the context of movement strategy, UNLOCK aims at building the innovative capacity of our movement and directly contributes to the recommendation 9.
Join us for insights into our lessons learned. And, we also welcome everyone who is interested in running such a program in their communities or in a collaborative partnership with us.
Session Outcomes[edit | edit source]
Participants will have
- developed a better understanding of the relevance of innovation within our movement and gained insights into our lessons learned of UNLOCK;
- been inspired by new innovation-driving formats since UNLOCK is not a typical project grant support;
- received initial ideas on how to implement the program themselves or are interested in co-create and co-organise UNLOCK with us.
