The new structure proposed for the Global Network brings the novelty of "Platforms", areas of work were the new members of the network can work together towards a shared goal. This workshop will try to figure out if we need a platform for Open GLAM in the new Global Network Structure and how could it work and look.

We'll look into the work of other organizations that are already on this field (such as Europeana, Internet Archive and Wikimedia) and what kind of added value CC can bring to these initiatives and into the global conversation about "Open GLAM". We'll start shaping the platform, identifying the following elements that this platform should have:

1. goals & objectives;
2. basic agreements over the platform / principles / positions / policies;
3. activities that could be carried on inside this platform & recommendation for policies that could be carried on within the platform;
4. who do we think should be members of this platform / whom do we should actively search to collaborate.

This session will grab some input from the Open GLAM sessions that will be happening at the Summit.
