The event is celebrated by individuals, institutions, and organizations across the world, and its organization is led by a global advisory committee. This is an important opportunity to catalyze new conversations, create connections across and between communities that can facilitate this co-design, and advance progress to build more equitable foundations for opening knowledge. 

The official hashtag of Open Access Week is #OAweek.
