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

The Year of Open became 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 have captured and displayed efforts to increase participation and understanding of how open contributes to making things better for everyone. In this session, I will discuss the results and share what's next for the Year of Open.
