Meet, campaign, learn, innovate, share, train, create, support, explore: some of the ways you can help open up knowledge for everyone. Join us.
We defined the field of open knowledge a decade ago. Since then, our expertise in technology, training, policy, and research has only grown. We offer professional and technical services to clients all over the world.
Open knowledge can be created and applied in many ways. Here are some key themes in our work:
Open information is essential to help everyone understand the issues, think of and try out solutions, and keep track of the risks and successes.
Citizens, democratic accountability and governance
All citizens should have free and open access to information about how their society operates, at national, regional and local levels, so that governments can be scrutinised and held to account.
Research, science and culture
Free access to the sum of human knowledge enables everyone to fully understand their lives and our world, to make informed choices, and to build a better future together.
Consumers and business accountability
Everyone must be able to find out information about who owns and controls businesses, so that poor governance and damaging social and environmental practices can be uncovered, and to understand fully the products and services they use.
