Open Education is based on the development, use and reuse of Open Educational Resources (OER). Beyond the basic operations of OER, open educational practices have made it possible to move from resource to instruction. These practices are naturally associated with non-face-to-face education, but, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, they have also moved to face-to-face and hybrid environments. The effect of these educational practices leads to advances in innovation and research, always with an interdisciplinary character. Given the open context in which these educational practices are developed, there should be a link between Open Education and Open Science, allowing the scientific community to have evidence of the success and possibilities for improving these practices. In this webinar, we will defend the creation of these links between Open Education and Open Science and present cases in which we are working with these premises.

What does it take to dream and grow together with a vision of transforming society to be more just and equitable? Sustainable development is a vision that can be shared and that invites us to build better ways to improve people's lives. In this world, we have a great opportunity to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals through open and inclusive education. In this webinar we will share ideas for a shared dream with the OpenEd programme, where educational innovation, entrepreneurship and interdisciplinary collaboration can support us to create innovative projects, with a view to social impact, with a vision to contribute to the great challenges posed by the Sustainable Development Goals. Our engine will be to visualise the "Architecture of Horizons" with strategies, ventures and future scenarios in complex and highly uncertain systems, with the network that we have generated through the OpenEd programme.
