Open Data Day 2022

We are pleased to announce that Open Data Day 2022 will take place on Saturday 5th March 2022.

Open Data Day is an annual, global celebration of open data. Each year, groups from around the world create local events to show the benefits of open data in their local community and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society. All outputs are open for everyone to use and re-use.

In March 2021, we registered 327 Open Data Day events from across the world. Discover more about these events on the Open Data Day map, or search for an event in your area.

Thanks to the generous support of our partners – Microsoft, UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, Mapbox, Latin American Open Data Initiative (ILDA), Open Contracting Partnership and GFDRR – we gave out more than 60 mini-grants to support the running of great community events on Open Data Day 2021. Check out our blog post Open Data Day 2021 – it’s a wrap to find out what events received funding, and what they achieved at their Open Data Day event.
