Community Session Hangout: Discussion of the Open Knowledge community

February 19, 2015

How do Open Knowledge members (local groups etc.) around the globe identify
with the OK community, do we have a shared sense of belonging and identity
at all and what is it triggered by? And what does that imply for OK on its
way to a global ... movement, network, or other organizational construct?

The aim of this community session is to shed light on those questions and
to explore if the Open Knowledge community identifies itself differently in
relation to each other (e.g. all us activist individuals among ourselves
and also in relation to other activist groups / non OK 'branded') and in
relation to Open Knowledge International.

Those explorations are part of a broader interest in shifting dynamics of
socio-political activism from the perspective of civic motivations to
engage across national borders.

The session will be directed by Kersti Wissenbach from Open Knowledge
Netherlands, supported by Christian and Katelyn from Open Knowledge
