When Wranglers meet Watchdogs

April 9, 2013 in Events


How to draw insight from what local governments do and involve the community? This and other questions where eagerly discussed at the School of Datas “Wrangling for Watchdogs” workshop last week at Supermarkt Berlin.

Fifteen members of watchdog organizations in central and eastern Europe met up with data nerds from the School of Data and Open Spending to discuss how to use data in campaigns and other issues. The focus of the two day event was to improve the participants workflow around data and enable them to base their campaigns on evidence.

The workshop left us at the school of data inspired and re-enforced our idea of hands-on learning as the way to go using data problems. If you are interested in something similar Contact Us or subscribe to our Mailing List.
