> Good news!
> The UNESCO OER Recommendation was approved by UNESCO member states today,
> by consensus. Its final step for approval will take place at the UNESCO
> General Assembly in November, 2019 - though we expect that vote to be
> procedural.
> Creative Commons (CC) had two representatives in the meeting
> <https://en.unesco.org/events/intergovernmental-special-committee-meeting-related-draft-recommendation-concerning-open>
> (and in multiple side meetings) for the last two days, and we are pleased
> with the outcome. CC, the UNESCO OER Chairs, and many other IGOs and NGOs
> in the meeting were able to work with UNESCO members states to
> significantly edit some of the unhelpful definitions and improve other text
> in the document. This was truly a team effort.
> The final text of the document will be now coordinated and translated by
> UNESCO and they will publish it prior to the November meeting. Date TBD.
> Here is a copy of the DRAFT Recommendation on Open Educational Resources
> <https://drive.google.com/file/d/1N54rMUsvVO-9f1K-LN-pmkBQSto2wLRu/view>
> before edits were made to the document during the past two days.
> Special thanks to everyone who was involved in this long process of
> drafting the document, revising and improving it, educating your UNESCO
> country delegates, and helping to get it across the finish line. The
> Slovenian delegation and the UNESCO staff, in particular, deserve our
> gratitude for leading this project for so many years.
> I will share more information as it becomes available.
> This is a big win!
