Five Good Ideas about how to use, share and contribute to Open Data
Date: April 22, 2015
Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Who should attend:
Nonprofit organizations understand that having access to good, relevant and clear data is important for their work. No wonder then that these days there’s growing interest in engaging with the Open Data movement – a movement that has been driven by governments around the world looking to develop open data policies to become more accountable, effective, efficient and transparent. In this Five Good Ideas session, Harvey Low will provide ideas on how the nonprofit sector can communicate its priorities to government, in particular local municipalities, around what types of data it needs. At the same time he will suggest ways that the sector can position itself as a source of open data to support public policy. Harvey calls it the new frontier of open data: The ways in which local municipalities and nonprofit organizations can work together towards innovation and mutual social policy goals.
