CCWorld Commons Media Network  - CCWorld is a net of festivals around the world whose aim is to share, extend and promote audiovisual works that follow openness and free culture criteria. A network of free adhesion and peer collaboration on a global scale for local action and transformation - Fernando Paniagua , Andreu Meixide

Grassroots awareness and the impact of Civic Tech in Nepal - Nepal made a significant improvement in the field of Openness, especially in Open Data. The government showed some commitment by starting a discussion and made some notable decision to promote the culture of collaboration. This was made possible because of the active participation of CSOs and grassroots awareness. Civic technology has been the backbone, projects like Open Data Nepal, AskNepal, NepalMap etc are making an impact. In the session, I will share how we can run the grassroots awareness to create an inclusive ecosystem and use civic technology to develop reliable products - Nikesh Balami

Using offline tools to build open content and introducing CC - This session will introduce WikiFundi, an open-source editing platform that provides an offline editable environment with a similar experience to editing Wikipedia or Vikidia online. WikiFundi provides the ability for teachers, Wikipedian communities and NGOs working in the knowledge space to learn about editing Wikipedia and contributing knowledge when internet access and electricity outages fail or are not available at all - Florence Devouard
