As Cable Green reports, "On May 28, 2019, UNESCO member state representatives took an important step for open education by adopting the 2019 UNESCO OER Recommendation (7 page PDF), providing unanimous approval to bring it to the next General Assembly" (there were some minor amendments which delayed the release of the text). The document contains many voices, as would be expected in a UN statement. It offers a new definition of OERs (but not really different from previous definitions): "an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions."
