Global Summit 2017


Creative Commons 2017 Global Summit: Sharing and the Commons: What’s Next

Toronto – April 28-30, 2017

The 2017 CC Global Summit launches a new chapter for Creative Commons as a movement. The Global Summit will provide a collaborative and fun space for anyone in the world to explore the future of the Commons and sharing for users, creators, and activists.

We will shift the narrative from CC-licensed content to the community that both creates and promotes the value of the Commons. In the process, we will not only strengthen our current network, but expand our reach — growing the movement for a more vibrant, usable, and collaborative Commons centered on the people that make it possible.
