Make it Open

Developing innovative formats for Open Learning

Make it Open is a pan-European, 3 year exploration of Open Schooling formats. Forth, alongside partners including the Waag Institute for Technology and Society and the European Ministries of Culture, are working on lowering the barriers for teachers and schools to collaborate with their communities.

Drawing on the philosophy of the maker movement and methods of Citizen Science, we’re developing an accessible and actionable framework comprising communications, tools and training. In 2022-2023 we’ll work directly with 150 schools across Europe.
