2016–2020: Strategy and Ideas

In 2016, Creative Commons presented its 2016–2020 Organizational Strategy, reflecting over a year of intensive collaboration by CC’s global community. The insights and approaches contained within it have been influenced by hundreds of valuable discussions with our stakeholders, ranging from creators and open community leaders, to foundations and government officials.

This will be a transformative shift for Creative Commons — a new direction that is more focused and will have even greater impact. For more, we hope you’ll check out our series of blog posts: “We need to talk about sharing,” “Towards a vibrant, usable commons,” and “Let’s light up our global commons.” or read the full strategy.
