Dear Reader,

We are so excited with everything happening at OpenUK in the next two weeks!

Open Technology for Sustainability Day

On 11 November, Remembrance Day, we will be remembering our planet and exploring how open technology – software, hardware and data – and its values,  can influence a more sustainable planet and  with our Open Technology for Sustainability Day at COP26. This Day offers us the unique opportunity to explore this. The event is possible thanks to the incredibly generous sponsorship of both Federated Hermes and Red Hat to whom we are hugely grateful.

We have our amazing content, Keynoted by Lord Maude, and with an array of amazing participants shared at Be a part of this event by joining us digitally and explore the content further at our Eventbrite page.

And no need to wait for 11 November! Our partner the Uptime Punks Podcast are sharing podcasts with our COP26 speakers and partners recorded in the COP Seat on the day and also in advance.

We will be celebrating our amazing Open Technology Community here in the UK announcing the winners of the 8 OpenUK Awards the very same evening from 6-8pm with a Hybrid Ceremony.
