We’re proud to announce that summit registration is now open, along with our call for community submissions. Please consider joining us, whether you are a longtime contributor, or new to the CC community. Hope to see you 28-30 April, 2017 at the beautiful new Delta Hotel in Toronto! Please help us spread the word.

The CC Summit Program Committee has been working hard to deliver an awesome Summit in 2017. This dedicated group is from a variety of countries and backgrounds and has developed the 2017 theme – “Sharing and the Commons: What’s Next?”. The committee has also set our summit program goals:

To define sharing and the Commons for the next generation

To shift the focus to people, moving beyond licenses to enhance collaboration and sharing

To discuss the future of the Creative Commons network and grow the CC movement

We are creating the summit program with your collaboration. If you’re interested in contributing to the program, please answer our Call for Submissions with ideas. We welcome ideas from affiliates, partners, supporters, and anyone else you know who might help us design a great event. You can submit your own ideas, or just help us get the word out.

We’d love to hear how you’ll bring your ideas to life at the Summit. Deadline for submissions is 27 January 2017.
