OpenCon 2016 Lofa has ended

OpenCon satellite events are local meetings about Open issues that are held in partnership with a global annual OpenCon meeting to advocate for Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education around the world.


Our event in Zorzor will bring together over two hundred participants including students, researchers, and members of the public who are interested in learning more about openness in research and education from Lofa county and other parts of the Country. There will be talks by local speakers, video content streamed from the global OpenCon meeting held in Washington DC, and participatory workshops about open information and community organizing.
