Keynote Presentation - A Culture of Peace

Let's explore the connection between open access, open culture and peace-building. In this cross-regional and cross-cultural presentation, we'll challenge the Creative Commons community to understand the critical role decolonized and democratized conceptions of Open Access, Open Culture, and Open Knowledge play in advancing peace at the local and global levels. Each speaker will provide examples of the challenges and/or opportunities they've experienced in advancing peace through the development, use, and dissemination of creative works.
