From Wikimania


Speakers[edit | edit source]

  • Mariana Fossatti (WhoseKnowledge?)
  • Ian Ramjohn (Wiki Education)

Abstract[edit | edit source]

The aim of this session is to share open recommendations and strategies for the contribution to the decolonization of the internet throughout the Wikimedia projects. These recommendations are a result of lessons learned and skills developed in articulation with civil society organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean. Wikimania participants and their backgrounds will help to root these recommendations to specific and diverse contexts, complementing the process of generating accurate tools that are a result of a participatory way of fostering civil society resilience.

Session Outcomes[edit | edit source]

In this session we seek to create a safe space to share learnings, listen to the experiences of those who participate and build tools that are collectively thought and designed. We want to learn from the participants who take part in our session new and diverse skills as a result of their active role in the debate and collaborative analysis of internet decolonization throughout the Wikimedia projects. We are going to use different online tools - in real time- to collect the recommendations, comments and sharings of participants, to continue working together after the event.

I'm planning to attend this session live![edit | edit source]

  9. I didn't attend live but saw the recording and would like to continue to be involved in decolonization strategies. Please get in touch or tell me which WikiProject I should join. I actually thought there would be more about this topic at Wikimania. EMsmile (talk) 01:22, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
