Frequently Asked Questions

What is the CC Toolkits project?

The CC Toolkits is an initiative of Creative Commons (CC) to strengthen the Global Affiliate Network through events centered around the curation of open content to help share the importance of CC. This project is being supported by Creative Commons Headquarters and coordinated with the help of volunteers around the world.

How do I get involved with CC Toolkits?

Working groups are getting together to build toolkits for each of the topics, and help adding items to our documentation page on the wiki. Check out the events page for updates on each working group’s progress.

Why are you building toolkits?

These toolkits will make it easier for people to share the word about CC by putting presentations, talking points, and other helpful media about CC in the hands our affiliates. Items in the toolkit will be free and openly licensed, available to anyone who wants to remix or share them with a friend.
