Global Summit 2011
Registration for the Summit is open! You can register here.
For three days in September 2011, the Creative Commons Global Summit will bring together the CC community in Warsaw, Poland, to engage strategically on the future of our shared commons, to renew and further build CC’s vital community, to collaborate on mutual projects and initiatives, and to celebrate our successes as we head towards the end of our first decade together.
CC HQ and meeting host, CC Poland, are still working on preparing the final agenda for the meeting, but a preliminary program is now available.
The Global Summit will bring together members of CC's Affiliate Network worldwide, CC board and staff, key stakeholders and many others interested in the present and future of the commons. It will include regional meetings, plenary sessions, legal-focused sessions, community-focused sessions, workshops, regional planning sessions and special discussion sessions on key issues such as key adoption areas, data, public domain and the new version 4.0 licenses. The meeting will also include a "public day", featuring sessions of most interest to members of the public, including case study showcases, sessions on CC use in areas such as education, government and science, and a CC Salon featuring local and international CC creations.
In addition, CC’s Board of Directors will have a board meeting in Warsaw and will be available to meet with Affiliates.
If you have ideas for specific sessions or topics to be addressed in a session, please contribute them via the Discussion page.
We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw. Na zdrowie!
The Summit will take place in the historic Pałac Prymasowski, a 16th century Palace located in Warsaw's Old Town.
There are multiple hotels located in the center of Warsaw, either in walking distance from the venue or reachable with a short taxi or public transport ride. MDM, Metropol and Polonia hotels will be used by CC staff and participants receiving CC scholarships to attend the summit.
