About The Year of Open

The Year of Open is a global focus on open processes, systems, and tools, created through collaborative approaches, that enhance our education, businesses, governments, and organizations. It is presented by the Open Education Consortium. 2017 was chosen as the Year of Open because it marks significant anniversaries of major milestones in open education. Read more

As part of a month-long collaboration with the Open Education Consortium, in September 2017, Europeana talked to digital cultural heritage experts from across the world and presented a discussion feature about open culture on The Year of Open website.

With videos, interviews, favourite collection items and fascinating stories of how digital cultural heritage is being used, the feature aimed to raise awareness and get people talking about open culture.
