Lightning talk introducing the Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) (2 minutes, 45 seconds)

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

The June SWAN meeting will be held in two sessions on Sunday June 6 (Saturday evening for North/South America), following up on the August, September, October, November, January, February, March, April and June SWAN meetings, as well as last June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting.
