The Open Blog is a project to collect and share practical resources for building open society: how to share knowledge and content in the open, build community, and create collaboratively.

freely available or accessible; unrestricted.

Our aim is to learn, to share, and to make visible the ecosystem of practitioners and projects in the open community. As we come across interesting strategies, projects, or people we will profile and share them here.

If you would like to collaborate please get in touch!
