Update: The Global Summit is now over. Huge thanks to the CC Poland team, and all the CC affiliates and staff involved in making it happen. See #Event coverage for updates on photos, tweets, and video of the event, and stay tuned to the CC blog for a more detailed digest.


Livestream for the Summit will begin Friday, 16 September at 9:00 Warsaw time (CEST)! Watch at and follow #ccsummit2011 on social media.


For three days from 16-18 September 2011, the Creative Commons Global Summit, Powering an Open Future, 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.

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.

We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw. Do zobaczenia wkrótce! photos j-pocztarski 2164259748 - cropped.jpg Plac Zamkowy, Warszawa - The Castle Square, Warsaw, Poland (cropped) by Jarosław Pocztarsk, CC BY
