Open principles in geoeducation (open educational resources, free and open software, open data, open standards etc) are key for true empowerment of staff and students globally and making geospatial education and opportunities accessible to all . We look forward to working and building collaborations with all interested in this education mission. Access to quality education and opportunities is key for getting rid of extreme poverty and enabling broadly shared prosperity for all.
Millions of globally connected minds working together on the common mission of enabling Open Education opportunities for everyone will be key for making these developments possible. An idea whose time has come is the most powerful force in the universe, and the time for "Access to quality education opportunities for everyone" has arrived.
