Open Data Day (ODD) is an annual celebration of open data all over the world. For the seventh time in history, groups from around the world will create local events on the day where they will use Open Data in their communities.
As always, during ODD we expect to gain momentum and highlight the different uses that Open Data can have in different contexts.
If you want to get some inspiration for events, check out the Lookback on Open Data Day 2017 for an overview of many activities that happened last year.
The upcoming ODD is an opportunity to show the benefits of Open Data and encourage the adoption of Open Data policies in government, business and civil society.
All outputs are/will be open for everyone to use and re-use.
Stay tuned by following news on the Open Data Day website.
