09 July 2024


July 9
July 10

OpenForum Europe (OFE) is thrilled to be co-organizing the OSPOs for Good 2024 Conference at the United Nations!

This second edition of the OSPOs for Good symposium will be a multi-day conference held on 9th and 10th July 2024 at the UN headquarters in New York City, with a richer global presence of diverse open source thinkers, and with bigger ambitions and strides for championing OSPOs as a global network for good. This is a fully UN-hosted conference which has been co-organized by OFE, alongside the UN Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology, the UN Office of Information and Communications Technology (UNOICT), and OSPO++, and in conjunction with the German Federal Chancellery and the Government of Kenya.

While the 2024 conference will of course focus on the role of Open Source Programme Offices (OSPOs) like last year’s event, this conference will expand the scope to focus on how the conversation around OSPOs are enabling new forms of global cooperation around open source for good in countries. In delivering on this ambition, the 2024 conference is set to be ‘bigger and better’ in every way, serving as a high-level coming out party for open source in the UN system. It will deliver high-level thematic tracks that address key areas of open source policy, as well as highlight emerging examples of ‘open source for good’ from across the globe.
