Establishment of CC Chapter Slovenia
Yesterday, the Slovenian Chapter of Creative Commons was established by Slovenian members of Creative Commons Global Network. Some interested individuals were also present at the meeting.
There, we have discussed the main documents that are important for the functioning of the chapter, about the website cc.si that will soon be established as a reference point, about the past and future work within the CC network and we have also unanimously elected:
– Žiga Vrtačič as Chapter Lead
– Maja Bogataj Jančič as Representative and Legal Lead
– Filip Dobranić as Technical Lead
We are thrilled about the challenges that are on the horizon!
