About Themes

OPEN invites all of our voices, ideas, resources and engagement to converge within the context of each THEME. A theme is a multi-dimensional topic that touches almost everyone in the community in one way or another – today and long-term. As concepts become more clearly defined through collaboration, OPEN empowers solution proponents with connections to expertise, resources and potentially even funding to bring these themes to life through experiences and community-led initiatives.
