The intersection of Open, Education and Technology

About Us

The Open EdTech Global Festival brings together people from all parts of the globe to collaborate on building sustainable, long-lasting, open technology-supported education projects.

Alongside a curated program of events, we strive to create a space where the open software projects, government education ministries, development organisations, academics, educational institutions and users can get to know each other, and work towards building a strong open technical infrastructure to support education in the decades ahead.



What is Open Technology?


You can adapt the technology to fit better in your context


Good open projects aim to follow, or set, sensible technology and community standards


It works in your country, in your language

Open Support

Use any service provider, and switch to another at any time with minimal disruption – or look after it yourself


Open technology developers have a sustainable business model that users can trust


Open technology projects are designed so that they can carry on even if the org that started them disappears

We’re open to open

Open EdTech Global Festival invites those committed to improving education to attend.

Representing ethical, sustainable open source software projects at any level is an attribute to be recognised, and the 2019 Festival is your platform to network and learn from others in your industry.
