Global Network Strategy
What is it?
The Creative Commons Global Network Strategy Committee’s role was to identify the relevant issues, suggest areas of research and inquiry, provide analysis, and make a set of recommendations to the affiliate community. In May, the committee met for three days to identify issues and opportunities. At the time, they asked for additional research. Anna Mazgal, an independent researcher, was hired, who designed a series of interviews with affiliate teams, and wrote six reports, along with a global summary report. This is the first time CC has ever looked so deeply into the network and tried to understand how it works, and how best to grow and support it.
Based on the research, and many days of discussions, the committee will draft a series of recommendations to help create a stronger, more active and engaged community, along with the proper supports to be sustainable. The committee is busy writing together to share a final draft with you in early January.
