Despite the continuing pandemic and the challenges it presented, 2021 was a successful year for
Wikimedia CH. Our programmatic activities centered around three main focal points:
Wikipediaʼs 20th anniversary, 50 years of womenʼs suffrage in Switzerland and our new five-year
Our celebration of 50 years of womenʼs suffrage attracted new partners and volunteers and developed and strengthened existing bonds. It was the first year we linked many events to a common theme, and we discovered that it built momentum and engagement. So too did flagship events such as the 20th-anniversary celebrations and the inaugural in-person WikiSwiss Awards.
Our first-ever bilingual workshop responded to the needs of todayʼs community members, while our work establishing an Innovation Lab laid the necessary foundation to support tomorrowʼs members. Plus, our chapterʼs new strategy for 2022-2026 will guide us in making substantial impacts over the next five years and learning from our work so that we continually evolve.
