X5GON partners finalizing UNESCO Recommendation in OER

The UNESCO OER Recommendation was approved by UNESCO member states on 28th May, by consensus. Its final step for approval will take place at the UNESCO General Assembly in November, 2019. X5GON partners had two representatives in the meeting (and in multiple side meetings) for the last two days, and we are pleased with the outcome. Creative Commons, the UNESCO OER Chairs, and many other IGOs and NGOs in the meeting were able to work with UNESCO members states to significantly edit some of the unhelpful definitions and improve other text in the document. The final text of the document will be now coordinated and translated by UNESCO and they will publish it prior to the November meeting.

Wikifier at the core of X5GON at Open Knowledge Day

X5GON was presented as one of the main platforms using Wikipedia as it base technology with the Wikifier at its core. The presentation followed Jan Gerlach, from the Wikimedia Foundation at the Slovenian Open Knowledge Day, organised to celebrate the establishment of Creative Commons Chapter Slovenia @Aksioma. The Slovenian community argues that Open knowledge is knowledge that one is free to use, reuse, and redistribute without legal, social or technological restrictions. Open Data and Open Content, Open Science and Open Education, Open Hardware and Software are all building blocks of Open Knowledge and consequently an open society.
