Publicly funded educational resources should be openly licensed by default.

Mr. Green works with the global open education community to leverage open licensing, open content, and open policies to significantly improve access to quality, affordable, education and research resources so everyone in the world can attain their education goals. He is a leading advocate for open licensing policies that ensure publicly funded education materials are freely and openly available.

Mr. Green is the Director of Open Education at Creative Commons (CC) – which provides the well-known suite of open licenses that have become the global standard to promote sharing, collaboration and innovation. The CC licenses - numbering 1.3+ billion across 9 million websites – make it easy for anyone to freely access and use open educational resources.

Mr. Green will highlight the key role that access to information plays in ensuring quality education the world around.
