During 2017, the Year of Open moved quickly from simply being an avenue to recognize significant open education milestones to becoming a year-long event to bring awareness to all things open.

The Year of Open is a global focus on open processes, systems, and tools, created through collaborative approaches, that enhance our education, businesses, governments, and organizations. At its core, open is a mindset about the way we should meet collective needs and address challenges. It means taking a participative and engaging approach, whether to education, government, business or other areas of daily life. In its practical applications, open is about shared efforts and values to enhance people’s opportunities, understanding and experiences.

During the Year of Open, we captured and displayed efforts that increased participation and the understanding of how open contributes to making things better across the globe. In this session, I will share the highlights from 2017, inviting the contributors to speak about their Year of Open experience and what it meant to them. I will also share and invite others to contribute to the 2018 Year of Open.
