Open Data Day Poster
We are hosting our Open Data Day event a day earlier (not on the weekend) to make sure you can participate. We are planning a variety of short (max. 10-minute) lightning talks, to get you inspired by your colleagues’ different open data practices.
There will be three rounds of lightning talks, from within and outside UCT. After each round there will be a Q&A session.
The eleventh Open Data Day is the annual global celebration of open data, where we gather to reach out to new people and build new solutions to issues in our communities using open data. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society. The suggested themes are: (1) Environmental data, (2) Tracking public money flows, (3) Open mapping, and (4) Data for equal development. The event as organised at UCT will take place one day early, on Friday 5th March 2021. You can find the event details on the global map on the Open Data Day website.
Please connect with others and spread the word about Open Data Day using the #OpenDataDay and/or #ODD2021 hashtags.
