Individual Member Application


To join the Creative Commons Global network as an individual human being you will need:

  • An account for this website. If you don’t have an account yet, it only takes a minute to sign up.
  • Two people who are already part of the network and know you well enough to vouch for you. You’ll have the opportunity to search for them in the next step of this process.
  • A recognizable name in the community. This doesn’t have to be the name on your birth certificate, but should be one that you are known by.

Once you have completed the sign-up process:

  • You will have agreed to the Global Network Code of Conduct and the usage policy for this site.
  • Your application will have been viewed by the people you have nominated to vouch for you, and by the Membership Committee of the CC Global Network Council.
  • Your avatar, username, and the social media account names you provide during sign-up will be published and publicly visible on this site.
