Abstract & description[edit source]
Short presentation of the “Regional and Thematic Hubs” chapter of the Movement Charter content followed by an open discussion to gather insights, inputs, and feedback from Wikimania participants to validate and improve the proposed text.
The aim of the session is to present the Movement Charter content published by the Drafting Committee and gather input and feedback from Wikimania participants to either validate or improve the content. The session will help to create clarity and shared understanding regarding the expected future regional and thematic structures in the movement called hubs.
The session will start with a short presentation of the content by the committee members followed by an open discussion to surface key ideas and insights as well as concerns and observations from the participants. The session will conclude with summarizing the key points and clarifying the next steps on the work of the “Regional and Thematic Hubs” chapter.
The “Regional and Thematic Hubs” chapter of the Movement Charter will define the role and responsibilities of the hubs in the overall movement ecosystem, including the objective and function of the hubs and their connection with other entities in the ecosystem (affiliates, Wikimedia Foundation). The objective of the chapter is to create clarity and shared understanding of the definition and the function of hubs.

Qn. How does your session relate to the event themes: Diversity, Collaboration Future?
The Movement Charter is a Movement Strategy initiative proposed by the recommendation “Ensure Equity in Decision-Making”. The aim of the Wikimedia 2030 Movement Strategy process has been to reimagine the collective future of the movement with a focus on better collaboration across the movement and embracing the diversity of perspectives present across the movement stakeholders. As a result, with the aim to define the future roles and responsibilities, mutual accountabilities, and ways of working in the movement, the Movement Charter is intrinsically linked with the theme of Wikimania this year.
