Open Source Initiative

Cooperation and Development Network is happy to announce a call for new members of the Open Source Initiative. We are looking for interested and motivated people who want to discover the Open Source Philosophy and work together in further exploring this area.

Open Source is a philosophy and methodology based on transparency, collaboration, free redistribution, and non-discrimination. This approach is frequently applied in the field of technology, one prominent example being Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).

The Open Source Initiative has been set up in 2013 with the aims of promoting FOSS, capacity-building of Young Greens and developing FOSS tools for activism and has since then organized and participated in a number of events and workshops, among others a Study Session on Open Source in Strasbourg in March 2014. One of the results of our work is the Open Source Wiki, where you can find almost everything we have been working on.

The Open Source Initiative is meeting regularly online and is working primarily through mail, mumble, etherpads and the OSI Wiki. Apart from that there is a possibility for live meetings during CDN events such as the Summer Camp or Study Sessions.

If you are interested in applying please fill in the form below and send it to office [at] by Thursday 15th May 2014. Technological skills are not a requirement for applying but curiosity and a willingness to learn are highly appreciated! For any questions regarding the Open Source Initiative write max [at]

Call for members – feel free to spread it!
