    Goal 4 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Universities and libraries used to have a monopoly on knowledge. The internet changed this completely. Nowadays information is broadly available, not only in the developed countries, but more and more also in the developing countries. This opens the world for open education.
    Although the sharing is free, the costs of education are still increasing for many learners around the world. Many open education initiatives around the world are changing this paradigm and offering lifelong learning opportunities to learn for free.
