The Cape Town Open Education Declaration was launched ten years ago, helping to ignite global momentum around the open education movement. To celebrate and reflect on our progress over the past decade, a group of open education activists met in Cape Town before last year's Open Education Global Conference in March 2017. The meeting identified ten key themes for the movement to focus on over the next decade, and together we produced a collaboratively written document highlighting opportunities to move open education forward.

This discussion will explore the ten themes identified in the Cape Town Declaration tenth anniversary process, and how they relate to open education advocacy and practice around the globe. The goal is to promote dialogue across contexts, and participants will walk away with concrete ideas for moving open education forward.

The session will begin with a brief introduction to the Cape Town Declaration and process for selecting the ten themes, then proceed to a set of short talks by conference participants from different contexts each reflecting on a specific theme and suggesting a concrete action step that can be taken. The remainder of the time will be opened up to allow audience members to share reflections and action steps of their own based on the themes, both verbally and by sharing on social media using the hashtag #CPT10.
