A world where knowledge creates power for the many, not the few.
That's a world we believe in. A goal we're aiming for. Open Knowledge Belgium is a grass roots organisation that consists of people, mainly volunteers, passionate about openness, using advocacy, research and technology to unlock information, enabling people to use and share knowledge in Belgium and beyond. We are a non-profit promoting Open Knowledge and an umbrella organisation for our 6 active working groups. Oh, and we’re also one of the local chapters of Open Knowledge International. Want to help us open up knowledge in Belgium? Get involved!
