Open knowledge has become a fundamental human right

Experts estimate that technology knowledge becomes obsolete in less than 5 years. In this fast-changing technological environment, having free access to technology knowledge becomes a fundamental human right, just as necessary and important as reading or writing.

However, disparities persist in access to technology education. While MOOCs used to be free, now 100% of their certifications need to be paid for. And most of them are still only available in English.

The only viable alternative is to open the barriers to knowledge, in terms of costs and intellectual property. We need to increase our support to openness by universally adopting, using and creating open licensed and open source content to increase its quality and universal reach.
