Program Strategy Goals 2020 Progress (end of the year) Comments
Access The chapter shall increase the knowledge about free licenses and increase access to free resources. A.1.1 Enrich the Wikimedia projects[1] with 25 new resources, through the creation and distribution of materials and by providing support and performing batch uploads. 20 resources out of 25
New resources were made available through projects in each of our thematic areas and spanned from very valuable content connected to the COVID-19 pandemic, to bibliographical data and different types of music related content. We also experimented with uploading data connected to objects on Wikisource.
A.1.2 150 identified[2] subject experts contribute to the Wikimedia projects with at least 1 productive edit each, through the dissemination of information, maintaining relationships or arranging thematic edit-a-thons. 194 experts out of 150
The experts are mostly through the Wikipedia in Library project but both the Wikipedia in Education and the Free music on Wikipedia projects also contributed significantly.
A.1.3 Involve 10 courses in the Wikipedia Education Program,[3] through educating motivated teachers and providing expertise on the Wikipedia tools for education. 11 courses out of 10
Due to COVID-19 this work has been limited the first half of the year. We have also adjusted the focus of this project to prepare educational material and a course format to train volunteers so that they will be able to support educational institutions in the future. In the second half of the year the number of courses increased significantly and time saved by not needing to travel allowed us to instead hold more courses and surpass the goal.
The chapter shall promote the increased use of free licenses. A.2.1 To increase the use of free licenses ensure that 50 organizations[4] are reached with information on free licenses. 179 organizations out of 50
The majority of organizations received information at events connected to the FindingGLAMs project early during the year such as the permanent delegations at UNESCO. The Wikipedia in Libraries project allowed us to continuously describe the value of free licenses for the library sector in Sweden.
A.2.2 Work actively to nurture and develop the relevant networks and contacts with people who can influence license choice of material in order to safeguard the topicality of the issue. This is achieved, in addition to regular activities, through active participation in or the organization of at least 10 new events and at least 10 new direct contacts with content owners, organizations and politicians. 23 new events out of 10

54 new direct contacts out of 10

Our definition of someone belonging to our network is when they have met a representative of the association and staff has some way of contacting them, they have received information about what we do as an organization and how they can reach us. We were very active in our activities in the first months of the year. Even though the second half of the year saw many events cancelled due to COVID-19, hence limiting our possibility to meet new organizations, we surpassed the goals significantly.
Use The chapter shall promote high confidence in and increased use of the Wikimedia projects and free knowledge. U.1.1 To inform the public about Wikimedia projects and free knowledge, good media relations are central. This is achieved through active work with press releases, op-eds, commentaries, newsletter and presence on social media. Based on the key figures identified as metrics by the office the measured media activities for November 2021 will increase by 10 % compared to November 2020. 1 out of 1
Only partial metrics for 2019 could be compiled and can be compared with this year’s numbers. What we can see is a significant increase in social media followers as an effect of our campaigns. The media visibility is however expected to significantly drop this year as we hosted Wikimania in 2019 and in 2020 had fewer events organized than usual and no dedicated communication staff currently hired. Despite the drop compared to the Wikimania year, we still received coverage for our work in 55 publications in 2020 which we are very happy about.
U.1.2 To increase awareness of the usage and trust, clearer measurement methods for how the Wikimedia projects are used, in general and by specific user groups, will be developed during the year. Not achieved
A plan for measuring the trust was developed to be conducted with the help of an external research group in 2021, however, this is likely to be cancelled due to an uncertain financial situation.
The chapter shall promote high usability of the Wikimedia projects. U.2.1 To decrease the number of bugs in the software and increase clarity all identified and verified bugs shall be reported on Phabricator within one week of being encountered and critical system messages will be translated.[5] The result is monitored annually. 100% (7 new bugs and 0 translation messages)
We have reported all the bugs that we have encountered in the MediaWiki software. We have not included bugs that we have reported in external Wikimedia related tools.
U.2.2 In order to make content available for more people the Wikispeech extension shall be activated as a beta function on three language versions of Wikipedia[6] before the end of the year, and supporting functionality/tools will be developed to add more languages. 0 of 3 languages activated
We have implemented all the feedback from the initial code review and have received valuable guidance from WMDE. However, in the end we did not receive the needed support and buy-in from the WMF to launch Wikispeech in the near-term. This is not due to the quality of the product, but on the internal priorities at the WMF.
Community The chapter shall support active users with expertise and other resources. C.1.1 To make work easier, support will be given, by the office, 365 times to at least 100 Wikimedians (or others who advocate for free knowledge) through expertise, financing or other resources.[7] 298 out of 365 occasions

79 out of 100 Wikimedians

The COVID-19 situation limited the type of support we could offer but in the second part of the year we managed to increase the support. While the support occasions were fewer we managed to double the number of supported individuals compared to 2019.
C.1.2 To strengthen the community the chapter will support at least 75 recurring meet-ups[8] for Wikimedians. 62 of 75
In the first 3 months of the year a large number of meet-ups took place. COVID-19 forced them to continue online, but the frequency was reduced compared to previous years.
C.1.3 To facilitate the use of new technical solutions on Wikipedia, a project shall be carried out around implementation, based on the Community's needs and desires. 1 technical wish implemented
The Maplink tool was finalized and activated on the Swedish language version of Wikipedia.
The chapter shall promote an inclusive climate and low barriers of entry for new users. C.2 To increase participation from Wikimedia's underrepresented groups[9], targeted initiatives organized by the association shall result in one productive edit from 365 unique users belonging to one or more of those groups. 1,279 out of 365
The GLAM and educational activities are still an efficient way to engage people from underrepresented groups. The WikiGap events are however responsible for the majority of contributions from underrepresented users. (The numbers can be found on the Outreach and Events Dashboard). We estimate that ⅔ of participants were women, but not all have been editing.
Enabling The chapter shall be competent. E.1 For the association to work competently the office staff shall be given the opportunity to develop their skills in relevant fields and the members of the board shall strive to develop their competences. 3 out of 9 board members

5 out of 9 staff members

Half of the team took advantage of developing their skills through external courses/training. However, all staff members received a number of in-house training opportunities.
The chapter shall be transparent. E.2 To strengthen the transparency of the organisation and offer insight to international Wikimedia movement the members of the board or office staff shall participate in at least 5 international Wikimedia events and on a monthly basis update international newsletters[10] and key wikiportals etc. 12 int. events out of 5

12 newsletters out of 12

Nearly all of the larger Wikimedia events were cancelled for the year. However, a large number of digital events around the implementation of the 2030-strategy and around education allowed us to surpass the goal. We have on a monthly basis published our GLAM reports in This Month in GLAM.
The chapter shall strive for organizational stability. E.3.1 To ensure organizational stability the chapter shall work towards broad and sustainable funding where no donor exceeds 50 %, a 100 % increase in membership from the 31 December previous year, increase volunteer involvement by 30 % compared to the total amount for the previous calendar year. The Wikimedia Foundation is the largest funder, responsible for 57.7% of the funding. The second largest source of income is the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority at 18.3%.

496 out of 1,008 members.

70 out of 125 volunteers

WMF’s part of our funding increased due to two grants on top of the Annual Plan Grant. The distribution of funding does not take in-kind donations into account.

Most of the volunteer involvement occurred through our WikiGap activities and with work around the Open Educational Resources network we have been working with. However, the international WikiGap events organized by volunteers are not included here as we are lacking data. We had fewer volunteers this year than in 2019, the year when we had Wikimania, and because of COVID-19 preventing us from engaging volunteers with organizing our events. However, we did end up significantly increasing the number of volunteers compared to 2018.

E.3.2 To ensure organizational stability the office shall actively work to increase the amount of overlapping competencies in business-critical areas. Fulfilled the goal.
Efforts include improved documentation around finances, usage of our wiki and information about our new tools. We have continued our efforts to organize small working groups at the office instead of delegating the responsibilities to one person and on documenting the work on Phabricator.


  1. The Wikimedia projects mean those platforms within the Wikimedia Family that are usually called sister projects of Wikipedia:
    • Wikipedia The free encyclopedia
    • Wikimedia Commons The free media database
    • Wiktionary The free dictionary
    • Wikisource The free library
    • Wikibooks Free textbook collections
    • Wikiquote The free quote compendium
    • Wikivoyage The free travel guide
    • Wikispecies The free species directory
    • Wikiversity Free learning resources
    • Wikidata The free database
    • Meta-Wiki About the projects
    • We also include
  2. Identification can be via user names systematically connected with the institution, special user templates showing the connection to an institution, registration in a Wikiproject, or possibly through personal knowledge etc.
  3. This include the Wikimedia projects, and Wikimini, according to the principle that we train a pedagogue that are using the creation of content as a part of the pedagogical process.
  4. An organisational unit with self-governing power is included here; however, units that have been included previous years are not.
  5. Software which is considered is MediaWiki extensions in use on the Wikimedia project or on This is in accordance with the priority order: bugs, erroneous translations, untranslated.
  6. Swedish, English and Arabic language Wikipedia.
  7. We are counting occasions and Wikimedians as follows:
    • Only activities outside of other project related goals count. I.e. a Bot Academy focusing on cultural heritage and as part of COH does not count, but an event focused on running bots but not related to a specific project count.
    • Wikimedians and advocates for free knowledge who got support count, regardless of if they used the information or not. The important part is that they asked for help/resources. I.e. people contributing to FOSS-projects count.
    • We count occasions as when someone got help from a WMSE staff member. I.e. a volunteer working for two weeks without contact does not count, but if they send an e-mail with questions after a week that counts as one occasion. Questions related to memberships, donations or administrative matters does not count towards the goals.
  8. With recurring meetups we are referring to some type of face-to-face meetings that are repeated over time.
  9. Underrepresented groups are here defined as:
    • women
    • contributors to a language version other than the 10 largest Wikipedias (per 5+ editsp/month (3m avg) according to or Swedish Wikipedia
    • contributors who are 60 years or older
  10. such as the GLAM Newsletter and possibly the Education Newsletter.
