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.
