Open Coworking was founded out of a desire to defend and advance the core values that ensure the coworking movement continues to be one that best serves the needs of the people it was formed to help.
The core values of coworking are:
In addition to embodying and upholding the core values of coworking, we have also made commitments of our own:
- We’ll be open. What we do and how we do it will be shared, as much as we reasonably can, with those who are interested in participating and with the general public.
- We’ll be neutral. So much of the power and beauty of coworking reside in its freedom to be interpreted differently by each person who finds it. We are here to celebrate the entirety of coworking and the good it can do in the world, without limiting the scope of what it can be.
- We’ll maintain a spirit of positivity and goodwill. The movement has been built on a foundation of positivity and collaboration that must be preserved and extended as much as possible, so those who find this movement may better realize their dreams of a better world with our help.
