New This Round

Culture Track

This round, we’re piloting a new "culture track" to improve how we serve participants who work on openness outside of traditional projects. We'll focus on the principles, practices, and skills of open leadership. This track will help you understand how to design and build an open culture that promotes understanding, sharing, and participation and inclusion so you and your teammates feel empowered to make the change you want to see in the world.

It might be especially useful to you if you:

  • Work day to day within your community to promote openness.
  • Lead cultural change in your community, organization, or project.
  • Serve in a particular outreach role to help people make change on a peer-to-peer basis.

More information about this track will follow, so stay tuned or drop us an email.

Theme: Data and You

“Exploring the data we create, the platforms and devices that collect it, ways to secure it and the laws that protect it.”

Between GDPR and Cambridge Analytica we’ve seen a rise in awareness around the use and collection of personal data in 2018. That’s why, along with other projects related in Internet health, we’re looking to highlight work related to the theme “Data and You”.

If you’re creating tools or raising awareness about personal data, please apply! We want to explore ways to connect our personal feelings, observations and motivations with the topic of personal data.

Through this program and community it's how PREreview started. Apply today to get your open project and ideas off the ground!
