We’re really looking forward to CIVICUS’ International Civil Society Week (ICSW) this year in Bogotá, Colombia! We hope you’ll join us for these two important and related sessions at ICSW if you’re going to be in town:
DataShift: How Citizen-Generated Data is Driving People Powered Accountability for Sustainable Development
Monday, 25 April, afternoon session
In this session, we will be exploring how citizen-generated data initiatives can accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on examples from Nepal, Argentina and East Africa.
How can the new Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data help ensure civil society is at the forefront of a Data Revolution?
Tuesday, 26 April, afternoon session
In this session, we will be discussing the Global Partnership on Sustainable Development Data, a new initiative that CIVICUS and the DataShift team are engaging in to ensure civil society and citizen-generated data are recognised as and supported to be integral actors in a data revolution for sustainable development.
And on Saturday 23 to Sunday 24 April we are also hosting a DataShift community gathering we’re calling “La Reunión.” This event will bring together our core community of partners and collaborators to share lessons and experiences. We look forward to sharing what comes out of this gathering in our blog, so stay tuned!
