Hoppa till navigering Hoppa till sök

This program plan was developed during 4 full days of meetings of members and board during two weekends in August and September 2012. As a first step, a broad strategy was developed based on Wikimedia Sverige's vision and an analysis of earlier activities. Next, all project ideas have been collected, categorized and prioritized against the strategic points. As one of Wikimedia Sverige's goal is a substantial external funding, these ideas are further developed into project proposals and realized on a more opportunity chasing base, and only administrative costs and high prioritized projects may be covered by the FDC grant. As of September 2012, applications corresponding to one third of the open part of the financing have been submitted.


Wikimedia Sverige's strategy gives focus for the programs on a 2-4 year basis from 2012 in order to reach the, by the association decided, Vision.

The strategy is divided into stakeholders as in the vision. It is the results from discussions during a member meeting]] in August 2012.

Program plan

Content liberation

Information about free licenses

Lack of knowledge and ignorance about free licenses is a major key for disregarding free licences. Among a majority of professionals, CC licences lead to confusion and dissatisfaction as many prejudices regarding the released rights, copyright transfer and reuse exist. We will update our GLAM white book to a third release, and create one with focus on photographers focusing on new opportunities rather than on inflexible business models. With further information material we will run information campaigns towards both customers and creators of content.

Influence organizations

This activity mainly includes the continuation of the Europeana Awareness project, and cooperations similar to the CMS cooperation. We will more actively point out the availability of free images at authorities and spread information about best practices.

Practical support

A major bottle neck and showstopper is the lack of practical support for GLAM institutions. Image donations can not be processed due to the lack of capacity and volunteers at the upload side as donors are left on their own, and substantial help from our side is needed. We will provide better information about the implementation of QRpedia, and will take the hand of two pilot partners. We are investigating the possibilities of a rent-a-Wikipedian as a shorter alternative to a full Wikipedian in residence. Furthermore, improved GLAM statistics will be provided through a master thesis project.

Free knowledge in education

Wikipedia in Education

Research liberation

A major part of the research in Sweden is financed by private foundations. A more and more common requirement is a free publication of the results (open access), which however, does not meet our definition of free. We will work to make both the financing bodies and researchers aware of the advantages of true free licences for the society.

Community support

Support the active editors

We are continuing our community project budget, technology pool, reference literature project and the support for media accreditations. Clear guidelines for mini grants for e.g. travelling, tickets, areal photography etc. will help to reduce the administrative overhead and processing time for both volunteers and the association. A special attention is paid on making known our projects to the community, and to get feedback on our activities. Furthermore, we work to make new features and tools for editors localized quickly.

Underrepresented groups

Underrepresented groups including but not limited to women, retired persons, experts in the field, minorities and immigrants have a huge potential for contribution. We are continuing our cooperation with Wikifem, arrange further workshops and especially raise awareness about the lack of these groups. Together with our education projects we will focus on Swedish for immigrants education. As the launch of the visual editor makes editing much easier, the resources of retired experts will provide much space for new concepts.

Meetings for active editors

This category includes the organization of edit-a-thons, a regulars' table tournee, meetings of project work groups, FSCONS, WMSE organized fotosafaris etc.

Topic experts

The major project in this category will be WikiLovesCompany as a cooperation with the "Centrum för näringslivshistoria" (Centre for Business History). We will try different concepts like a "peer review"/expert feedback for excellent articles, certificates for participation, and contact with stakeholder organizations.

Reader participation

Educating the public

Our goal is to increase the general knowledge about the mechanisms of Wikipedia and free licenses. We want to increase the amount of proactive appearance in media, and develop Wikimedia Sverige into a knowledgeable spokesperson. We will spread information material about (reusing) free licenses, write debate articles and participate in the Gothenburg book fair. Furthermore, we will develop a concept for participation of Wikipedia and free knowledge in the european culture capital Umeå 2014.


To enhance the usability of the platform, we will work as a contact between the Wikimedia Foundation and users in Sweden. This includes an active monitoring of user feedback on Village pump and Wikipedia questions and file requests in Bugzilla for others, and to make new features quickly available. During a translation sprint/hackathon we focus on getting the platform fully localized.

User feedback

We will continue to examine and collect the need and wishes of users, and communicate to the community. Furthermore, we will help that article feedback tools become available and localized quickly.

Reflection on past activities and innovations

This section provides the FDC with information about your entity's past activities and strategies. Please answer the questions below with your reflections on the past fiscal year. Responses to each question should be one or two paragraphs.

  • How does your entity define and measure "success"?
Wikitionary has a nice definition of success: "The achievement of one's aim or goal." Since our goal is to promote and provide free knowledge, we consider us successful when we can have that positive impact on society. We measure it by chunking it up into smaller pieces, to our projects. They has been carefully selected and prioritized through long and hard work and involving both members and the community and when these are successful we know that we are on the right track.
  • Please give at least three examples of successful activities that your entity has completed. If available, provide links to information about these activities.

Wikipedians in Residence at the Swedish Heritage National Board: http://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Pressmeddelande_2012-04-18
Using a technology pool for proffesional equipment to volunteers and helping with accreditations: e.g. Royal wedding, Nobel festivities, Gothenburg book fair (about 80 interviews and photos of more than hundreds of writers and politicians, first uploads from 2012)
White book on copyright for GLAM: http://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Kulturskatter_p%C3%A5_n%C3%A4tet/en
  • What are the plans/strategies that did not work for your entity in the past? What did your entity learn from that experience / those experiences?
Wikimedia Sverige has tried to engage academics through Wikipedia Academy. During the actual events we received a lot of interest and the academics were mainly positive. However, we have not gained much traction through this afterwards; they have been relatively slow in actually getting active, and as a result, the expected benefits for the projects, such as high quality articles, were not realised. We have learned that the event in itself is not enough to get them active but that it requires follow-up and continued support. In the future, we would rethink the concept of Wikipedia Academy from being a one-off event only, before trying it again and having clear goals and a broader plan of what we want to achieve with the Wikipedia Academy. This lesson will we also apply on edit-a-thons and editor engagement that are in our program plan this year.
  • What else has your entity learned or innovated upon that could benefit the broader Wikimedia movement?
  • Interactions with credible persons: Nobel laureaetes interviews http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-interviews_2011.ogv, short interviews presenting the article subject himself
  • Modules developed in CiviCRM that can be used by other chapters, for example public and live accounting and bookkeeping for high transparency and time reporting that integrates to that. https://donera.wikimedia.se/en/wmse/audit/public/2
  • That all projects and events only become truly valuable after there has been an evaluation made and a follow-up with the participants.
  • For Wiki Loves Monuments, try to engage other groups to gain momentum and wider reach. For example immigrant groups that can learn the local culture and geography.
  • Think quality collaborations instead of many quantitative such. For example in the Wikipedia Education Program, go slow and build a mutual trust and find a few highly enthusiastic collaborators within the educational sector.

Year-to-date progress

This section provides the FDC information about how your entity is progressing against the current fiscal year's planned budget (revenues and costs).

Please provide the relevant information below. "Year to date" refers to the period between the start of your entity's current fiscal year and the date of submission of the proposal(+). If it is helpful to link to your entity's current fiscal year plan and budget, please do so.

Table 3. details:

Based on the variance percentages above, please describe how your entity is progressing against revenue and spending targets. If you expect your entity to be significantly under or over target on either revenue or spending, please provide a detailed explanation.

Numbers are as of 2012-09-20. We are underspending right now since recruiting proved to be hard, resulting in a delay of about 2 month in the expected personnel growth. We are increasing our staff though, with one more full time employee for the education program from October 1, one half time employee for administration and bookkeeping as soon as possible, and one one-month project tenue. Liabilities from signed contracts, tax etc. sum up to SEK 543,500 in 2012, while projected project costs, pensions and to-be-signed working contracts are expected to consume additional SEK 470,000. A final surplus of less than SEK 500,000, resulting from overall lower staff cost, is expected for 2012, which will be used as a reserve in the upcoming budget.

Key initiatives and objectives of the upcoming year annual plan

The table is intended to provide an overview of your entity's upcoming year annual plan and its alignment with the movement's strategic goals; please provide short phrases or 1-3 bullet points for each initiative in the table below. Feel free to add more details below the table (1-2 paragraphs per initiative). You can also link to any other documents that you think might be helpful as context.

If you feel you have an initiative that fulfills a strategic goal that is not immediately identified with a Wikimedia strategic goal ('readership' rather than 'editorship', for instance), please add that in the table and offer us your rationale.

Please link to your entity's strategic plan if you have one.
