Dear colleagues,

It is over a decade now since we started working on the philosophy of Openness in Geospatial Science  and Education [1],[2],[3]. Please find below the  pledge for  supporting Open Principles for Science and Education for building a better world for everyone [4].

“I believe Science is a public good and quality education opportunities should be open and accessible for everyone.

I will work to eliminate the digital divide and contribute to building up Open Knowledge for the benefit of all humanity, with special effort to enlighten future generations.

I contribute my service for the betterment of all humanity using the guiding principles of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in building a better world for everyone.

I will work to advance and increase Open Knowledge for the benefit of all humanity with special consideration of those less fortunate.

I will be a voice for Open Principles in Science and Education and promote this pledge through my networks.”

Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,


Dr. Suchith Anand
