We are a crowd

Open Knowledge Network
The Open Knowledge Network connects those in open movement across 40+ countries, enabling people and communities to take action and achieve local impact.

The Open Knowledge Foundation is a part of a global network with groups in more than 40 countries and counting! We use advocacy, technology and training to unlock information, to create and share knowledge. We also lead in-depth debates so that we collectively build a social infrastructure that integrates openness as a design principle in our democracies.

If you are interested in contacting a group or individual in your country, check out our list of experts. Our groups can always benefit from more friendly faces and fresh ideas — they will be happy to hear from you! Please contact us if you, as an individual or organisation, would like to join our global network. Everyone is welcome; anyone can join. No special skills or background are needed — just an interest in open knowledge.

The members operate independently, setting their own priorities for projects relevant to their country or domain, but support each other, share expertise, tools and materials on a regular basis through the network, amplifying open knowledge activities around the globe.

If you want to know more about the Open Knowledge Network activities, and browse through the most important projects, have a look at the Project Repository.

In addition, the Network identifies specialists of the open movement to be part of the Open Knowledge Global Directory: a curated and searchable database of people with different expertise areas and language spoken. Go to the Global Directory and remember you can request a specialist today!
