The Network of Open Organizations shares a vision of education as a global collaborative act involving sharing knowledge, co-creating learning experiences, and building community. A vision where education is free of language, cultural, geographic, racial, and gender/identity barriers. A vision of education as accessible, affordable, and adaptable. A vision where education addresses local and global challenges, improving the health and well-being of people all over the world. The Network of Open Organizations is future defining and a pathfinder for that future.

The Network of Open Organizations sees open education as a practical means of achieving this transformative vision.
