Session Notes (etherpad)


Wikimedians are engaged in various activities. Here, we plan to map them to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations
An initial attempt at mapping Wikimedia activities and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), made in a brainstorming session during the Wikimedia Conference 2017

Abstract[edit | edit source]

This workshop will address how the United Nations's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can serve as a framework that helps maximize the social impact of Wikimedia activities. The two are already very much aligned, but there are benefits in making the alignment more explicit, e.g. by prioritizing the creation and curation of Wikimedia content related to the SDGs. In this workshop, we invite participants to look at some past, present or future Wikimedia activities and explore what could change if they were framed around the SDGs, using examples of activities undertaken under the umbrella of the Wikimedians for Sustainable Development initiative. The goal is to re-assess how the reframing of these activities might affect their social impact.

Crowdsourced activities[edit | edit source]

Please help us get an overview how the sessions this year relates to the Sustainable Development Goals. If we help out, it can be quite quick. Thanks for any and all help!

Mapping Wikimania sessions to the Sustainable Development Goals[edit | edit source]

  • Please do one or more rows in this spreadsheet. Put an "x" in the SDG column if a session is related to it and also an "x" in the first column when you're done with a row (to avoid duplicate work).

Mapping Wikimedia activities of any kind to the Sustainable Development Goals[edit | edit source]

  • Please do one or more rows in this spreadsheet. Put an "x" in the SDG column if a session is related to it and also an "x" in the first column when you're done with a row (to avoid duplicate work).
