The 2020 CC Global Summit, held May 14-16 in Lisbon, Portugal, gathers those in the open community under the umbrella of learning, sharing, and creating; united by a passion for growing a vibrant, usable commons powered by collaboration and gratitude.
Nearly 25% of all Global Summit attendees receive support from Creative Commons in the form of scholarships.
Creative Commons believes that providing pathways to participation is crucial to our goal of lighting up the commons.
The scholarship program helps ensure the global community remains central in the debates, collaborations, connections, and strategies for action that make the Global Summit such an exciting and important event.
Applicants are the heart of our scholarship program. Scholarship recipients represent a rich variety of communities and issues, including free and open culture, copyright reform, GLAM, open education, and global information systems. They also represent every CC world region, with the majority coming from Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America.
The CC Global Summit is open to anyone who is interested and we always welcome new faces and fresh ideas. If you are wondering whether you should attend the CC Global Summit or submit a proposal, it may be helpful to know our general audiences:
