Many of you might be familiar with the term Open Science. Part of Open Science is about publishing Open Access and Open Data so that everyone can access research results and data. Another part of Open Access, that might not be as known, is Open Educational Resources (OER), which is about publishing openly licensed educational materials and technologies. The aim of OER is to break down barriers of affordability and accessibility to educational material. In 2019 "The Recommendation on OER" was adopted by UNESCO’s General Conference   at at its 40th session.
