We all know how important is to work with the community on Open Data delivery and understanding. It is also important to teach young people and help them use the open data to build something for the community and citizens – some apps that deliver additional services to all of us. Applications are the key for open data delivery: if we really want to see the benefits of open data, we need apps.
To support that, we are proudly sponsoring and partnering for Open Data Youth camp in Croatia.
Open Data Youth Camp is a five day event consisting of workshops, lectures and discussions and focusing on use and reuse of public sector information. The Camp is organized by the Council for the Open Government Partnership (OGP) in Croatia. The Open Data Youth Camp will take place from 29th of August to 2nd of September 2015 in Rovinj.
The goal of the camp is to provide a space for young active citizens to explore the potential of open data, to learn and discuss open government values and to become familiarized with the theory and the practices of the right to access information. The potentials of the use and reuse of public sector information will be explored through examples of the similar activities carried out in France, United Kingdom, and the United States as well as through examining the progress Croatia made by launching the Open Data Portal.
Experts from Croatia and other countries will come together in creating a four day program of lectures and workshops in order to assist the participants in finding new solutions for commercial use of data as well as for using and reusing data for the benefit of the local community.
