The FLOK (free, libre, open knowledge) Society project is in progress in Ecuador, where we’re creating a open platform for open technology-focused policy making, enabled by a combination of open technical infrastructures and democratic decision making. The current project will result in a set of 10-15 policy frameworks for the National Assembly of Ecuador, and other public institutions, culminating in a participatory policy summit at the end of May 2014. It has the potential to be extended into a permanent, global platform for policy work, supported by the original FLOKSociety hacktivist initiators, the P2P Foundation network and partners.
The aim of the project is to build on the experience of the
project, using open technologies/practices, sparking open policy creation for an Open Commons-based Knowledge Society globally.
