K4A partners with other stakeholders helping to launch with UNESCO a Dynamic Coalition for the OER Recommendation on 2 March 2020 at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, during the cancelled Mobile Learning Week.

The Dynamic Coalition will aim to expand and consolidate commitments to actions and strategies as well as reinforce international cooperation among all stakeholders in the 4 areas of the UNESCO OER Recommendation: i) Building the capacity of stakeholders to create, access, re-use, adapt and redistribute OER; ii) Developing supportive policy; (iii) Encouraging inclusive and equitable quality OER;  and (iv) Nurturing the creation of sustainability models for OER.

Check the new Recommendation in OER on the UNESCO official website.
