Creative Commons

For The Work Of The Open Policy Network

Creative Commons provides the foundation for Open Educational Resources through its free, machine-readable copyright licenses and has given tremendous strength to the "open" movement by advocating for greater use of such licenses. This grant would enable Creative Commons to continue to advance the cause of openness through the Open Policy Network, which seeks to encourage and support open policy opportunities with the information and resources needed to turn them into reality. The proposal will help further the creation, adoption, and implementation of open policies and practices in countries around the world.
