Explore the Open Movement°


Celebrating Hubs in every shape and size - from pop-up shops to maker-spaces, social venture incubators to creative clusters.


An open-source tools-shop for people building and running hubs. Apps, models, kits and technology to help with everything from business planning to impact measurement.  

Open Calls

Invitations to participate - with ideas, investment, knowledge, time and experience. 


A home for dedicated communities to share ideas, stories and data. A space to collaborate with other hubs in the community and build bigger value.

About this project

There are millions of people convening in hubs across the globe to create civic ideas and enterprises that demonstrate another world is possible. They are supported and hosted by hub-makers who shape the spaces and networks to grow potential. But who supports the hub-makers? These brave and visionary people often lack access to the skills, tools and markets they deserve to thrive.

Open Movement° is a meeting place for hub-makers of any and all kinds. It’s an atlas of initiatives, an open box of tools, a home for learning and a marketplace of calls to action.

The platform is being built with leaps of faith, generosity and investment by Open° and our friends. Open° is a small, emerging collective of people from places as diverse as Amsterdam, Cairo, Kigali, London, New York, Shanghai and Tunis dedicated to civic renewal around the world.
Our friends are The 1% Club, ICE, Hivos, British Council, Impact Hub, Nesta Labs, Fab Foundation, AfriLabs, Ananse, Indigo Trust, and the Salzburg Global Seminar.

The invitation

We’re just getting started. We’d love you to be part of growing and developing this open source platform.
