What is Open Assessors' Network?

Open Assessors' Network is a society promoting open, democratic decision making. It is independent of political parties and religions. Its members believe that when values and moral statements are more explicitly described and more systematically combined with scientific understanding, and this knowledge is used to guide decision making, the outcomes will improve. This approach may even be crucial with scientifically very complex problems or with problems where there are a large number of decision makers who each can decide about a small detail, but nobody is able to dictate the big picture alone. Open Assessors' Network utilises open assessment as the main method, and Opasnet as the primary workspace.

In Finland, Open Assessors' Network is being organised as an official society, Avointen arvioijien yhdistys Avary, or simply Avary. Currently, Avary does not exist as a society but only as a Facebook group: [1]

Anyone can solve common problems. Opasnet is the web workspace for solving them by you, and by us together.
