Advocating for free knowledge
Beyond our programmatic activities, Wikimedia CH advocates for issues such as copyright and net neutrality – values that are important to us as part of the Wikimedia Movement. We will continue to align ourselves with the political direction and stance of the Wikimedia Foundation and other chapters.
By actively participating in working groups and coalitions to advance digital and open-source themes in society and politics, we intend to develop our stance on these matters. We support civic action groups with expertise about the Wikiverse.

Our communication services
We collaborate closely with partners to communicate about projects while respecting their leading role and ownership of the project.
We provide partners with content such as statements, statistics or images to include in media releases and other communications.
We support our partners’ media relations and press releases with our media list of relevant outlets in Switzerland.
We usually tag #wmch #wikimediach #wikipedia. Please use these tags when posting about our work on social media.
Wikimedia CH staff are experts in their field in the context of digitalisation, topics around free knowledge and the challenges to a democratic society. We are at your disposal as speakers.
