Wikimedia strategy: Pro free knowledge, against fake news

The German Wikimedia chapter, at its general meeting on November 18 in Berlin, decided to support the strategic direction of the international Wikimedia movement as proposed by the Wikimedia foundation.

Until 2030, Wikimedia wants to become the “essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge” and will “stand against censorship, control and misinformation”.

This year, 100.000 new articles have been published in the German Wikipedia to date, and 6 mio. of freely reusable photos were uploaded to the media archive Wikimedia Commons.
