Creative Commons is now being endorsed by UNESCO – or at least its Communication and Information Sector.

Earlier this week, the UNESCO Communication and Information Sector officially launched its [Open Training Platform]( It aims to increase access to training and non-formal education resources that have been developed by a range of organisations, including the UN, development agencies and NGOs. It also aims to promote the open content movement and the use of open content licensing among contributors from these organisations, by providing information on and actively encouraging the use of open content licences – including the Creative Commons licences.
