Open Education Global (OE Global) works with its members to steward a worldwide community that transforms education systems everywhere through the adoption of openness in all aspects of education, particularly in daily practices and when creating materials. Together, we collaborate to keep education open and available for all.
Thank you to our members and our community for joining us on this journey!
Wherever you are in the world, in whatever way you celebrate this time of year,
we wish you happy holidays!
