I am very pleased to share Creative Commons’ 2019 Annual Report.
This report offers an overview of the important work CC did last year across the many domains and subject areas we work in. (Look for CC’s 2020 annual report to be released in early 2021, where we will have lots to share about this year’s accomplishments.)
In 2019, we continued working with major museums to release large collections into the public domain; helped draft the UNESCO OER Recommendation, which facilitates international cooperation around the development and use of freely accessible educational materials; and produced our biggest-ever CC Global Summit community event, which attracted people from all over the world to meet and discuss open access and our digital future. Plus so much more …
Our new and improved report format is designed to better highlight the organization’s accomplishments and impact. We hope you find it enlightening and enjoyable to read.
As the new CEO of Creative Commons, it is very exciting for me to think about all the ways the CC team will build upon this work going forward. This is especially true as we prepare to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Creative Commons in 2021—a monumental anniversary that we are thrilled to have you join us for.
A very sincere thanks to all of Creative Commons’ supporters, community members, friends, and collaborators. We couldn’t do this work without you.
Help us continue to unlock knowledge and creativity for everyone, everywhere—please consider becoming a donor to Creative Commons.
