The community that advocates for and contributes towards Openness is a really tiny community even though it is spreading across the entire world. As we speak of it now in 2017, there are only a handful of people that are active under the umbrella of Openness. But what that also means is many organizations and individuals are not really connected to each other. On the other hand, those individuals that generally volunteer to grow openness often are crunched with work and life might not always have enough time to connect with each other exchange knowledge. We are fortunate to be connected to many individuals openness advocates and organizations that are diving deeper into the spheres of Open Education, Open Science, Open Access and other Open areas. This page will give a bird’s eye view of who we are working with.
