We reinforce our open knowledge advocacy through partnerships with organisations like the Wikimedia Foundation and Creative Commons, and local cultural institutions (also called GLAMs - Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums). In collaboration with our partners we organise edit-a-thons to improve on a specific topic and workshops to introduce skills in editing on open knowledge platforms.

What Does Open Knowledge Mean?
