Introduction to Open Steps

Starting in July 2013 and for one year, we will travel through South-East Europe, Turkey, India, South-East Asia, Japan and South-America. We are going to take advantage of this opportunity and meet people, collectives and organisations actively working on making information, knowledge and education available for everyone.  This site will contain the documentation of these encounters and feature the projects we discover along our journey.

Open Steps is a non-profit project which consist on exploring, documenting and divulging  the state of the art in the field of Open Knowledge around the world.

logo_transparentWhy Open Knowledge/Knowledge sharing? We believe the philosophy behind these topics is of major importance for our society and the future generations. Making information, knowledge and education available for everyone is a big step towards equality where internet and new technologies should be the tool that communities and governments should employ rationally to achieve this goal, that’s why topics like Open Data are going to play a big role on our research. Please, read the Our Project section to experience more about this.

Many individuals, collectives and organisations are currently working hard in this direction, and those are the ones who we will talk about in this platform.

Our journey will begin soon, we have already forged some valuable contacts and the feedback received from different parts of the globe has been very positive, we are currently preparing our schedule and invite you to stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter. If you want to reach us your ideas about this endeavour, point out projects you consider we should feature or any other kind of feedback, we would be happy if you contact us.

Open Steps

Open Steps is an independent blog aggregating worldwide information around Open Cultures in form of articles, videos and other resources. Its aim is to document Open Knowledge (OK) related projects and organisations either using Open Data, promoting Open Source technologies, launching Open Government initiatives, following the principles behind Open Science, supporting the release of information or practising Data Journalism. In this way, this site seeks to continue, this time virtually, the globetrotter project realised between July 2013 to July 2014 and discover further OK projects all around the world.
