Attend the Data Commons Manifesto datathon session

Come to the Datathon session based on the Come to the datathon session based on the Data Commons Manifesto (part of the Decode project) and help spread digital commons knowledge! Last April more than 50 experts signed a manifesto for data sovereignty and commons. This collective action proposed adopting alternative data management models that are more transparent and democratic as a way of combatting surveillance capitalism.

Attend the GenderDataLab workshop

Bridging the gender gap in the digital sphere must be made a top priority by the world's governments. At the GenderDataLab workshop we will take a look at various initiatives that show how useful data analytics can be in identifying and visualizing diverse gender indicators. The goal is to create fairer and more equal policies in all the sharing cities that have identified data as a common good.
