Our mission is to create a fair, sustainable and open digital future, advancing open knowledge as a design principle beyond just data. We will do it by guiding and supporting the creation of digital infrastructure, developing policies and methodologies, harnessing communities and advocating for literacies and standards in a sustainable, ethical and agile manner.
