OPEN groups use digital tools and real-world organising to help over 17 million individual members drive progressive change.
Together we share innovations, collaborate on common goals and accelerate new organisations to deepen impact around the world.
All OPEN organisations are fully autonomous, deriving their mandate and agenda exclusively from the members they serve in their home country.
The OPEN network is growing rapidly and now includes some groups facing political repression. Therefore, this site does not reflect all current members.
OPEN groups connect year-round to share lessons learned, cautionary tales and best practices to supercharge every aspect of what we do and how we do it. The combination of shared values, similar practices and almost no institutional competition creates an extremely honest, generous and valuable exchange.

OPEN network members connect virtually through thousands of messages every month, live web seminars and facilitated learning circles across multiple issue and role cohorts. We gather physically at regular global and regional summits and through international staff exchanges. Over 120 such physical visits have occurred since 2014.
