Internationalizing the Open COVID Pledge

Internationalization of the Open COVID Pledge is necessary to ensure it reaches its full potential in the fight against COVID-19. A majority of adopters at present are U.S.-based companies and organizations, and the Pledge is little promoted outside of North America to date. To be successful and create critical mass, we need to advocate for adoption by companies, universities, and others worldwide, and empower our community to engage in advocacy and outreach armed with the tools they need to be successful. 

Join Creative Commons staff to discuss the current status of adoption efforts and discuss ideas for expanding the pledgor base. We’ll review current translation efforts related to the Pledge, an important aspect in assisting pledgors worldwide adopt the pledge. We will discuss  plans for increasing the diversity and expertise of the Open COVID Pledge Advisory Council and give you a chance to bring your ideas forward through a brainstorm.  The brainstorm, in collaboration with you, will look at what tools, information, and assistance that will be most useful to you for communicating the Open Covid Pledge to your community. This may include development of an advocacy toolkit for those wishing to approach new pledgors, templates and messaging about the core values of the OCP, template social media posts, informational summaries about the OCP, and how to identify institutions or organizations with memberships that might be reached collectively.

Come prepared with your thoughts and ideas of how you can communicate and make the Open Covid Pledge work in your country/region.
