Important CC Global Summit Update

Alison Pearce

Since the early days of the Creative Commons movement, the annual CC Global Summit has been one of the most important vehicles for bringing people in our community together to share their work, ideas, and vision for the future of Open.

Unfortunately, given the current concerns around the global spread of COVID-19 (and in the wake of scores of major conferences being canceled around the world), we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s in-person Summit.

This is obviously an unfortunate and disappointing outcome, but we feel strongly that it is the right call. The health and safety of our global community are of paramount importance.

If you registered for the Summit, you will of course be reimbursed any fees you paid. We will be in touch with you shortly with details.

We are considering ways to keep the energy and collaboration of the Global Summit alive in 2020. We’re excited to engage with the CC community on thinking through what this might look like.

In the meantime, thank you for all the hard work and enthusiasm you bring to this community. We look forward to seeing you in-person once again at Creative Commons Global Summit 2021.
