Open Data Day 2022 is nine months away – and we are already thinking about how to make it bigger and better than 2021 !

Recently we asked you about your experience with Open Data Day.

We wanted to know what worked, what didn’t and how it could be improved.

You gave us lots of really useful feedback which we published here.

One of things you told us was that we should

    ‘Promote some keynote events/lectures during Open Data Day’.

If you or your organisation would like to discuss working with us on ‘Promoting some keynote events/lectures during Open Data Day’ – please do email us on opendataday@okfn.org

We think focusing on one topic area, and curating and promoting some key note events, could be a powerful mechanism to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies by government, business and civil society.

There are many possible topic areas that we could focus on – from climate relevant data to open law. From open contracting data to oceanographic data.

If the Open Data Day team at Open Knowledge Foundation are going to do this, however, we need to identify partners from around the world with us.

  • We need people or organisations with topic expertise who can help curate events.
  • We need partners with broad community reach to ensure that the work we do together reaches the most people.
  • And we need funding to make it happen
