2014: The Commons in Review

Matt McGregor writes for Creative Commons International about NZ’s progress in 2014.

The 2015 CCANZ Road Trip

Our big news for 2015 is that we’re excited to be bringing Creative Commons events to schools and heritage institutions around the country in March. These talks and workshops will supplement the roll-out of our new sector-specific toolkits, and promote the adoption of CC policies. The list of events keeps growing, so please keep an eye onour website, and get in touch to request – or volunteer to host – an event near you.
