This is the first part out of a four part series recap from the International Open Data Day Stockholm 2016.

Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 37 The question of inclusivity was one of the questions explored this year in Stockholm by inviting people into the world of open data. The focus was on participation and user input for the projects that Open Knowledge Sweden and Wikimedia Sweden are running. The International Open Data Day in Stockholm 2016 was held on 5th March at the Wikimedia Sweden offices. It was a relaxed atmosphere and very casual event – yet very productive! The featured projects were FrågaStaten.se, Local Open Data Index with both regions and municipalities as well as the project on Connected Open Cultural Heritage Data (Kopplade Öppna Kulturarvsdata) (KÖK) in Swedish. Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 09 It all started off very calm and inviting with mingling as participants were arriving and the last preparation were taken care of. Then the workshop session started off with some welcoming words and a circle in a check-in letting participants share their names and answer the question: “Why are you here today?”. It was a diverse group of people who had come for different reasons all with diverse backgrounds three short presentations. It then followed with a 10-minute presentation from each featured project explaining their concepts and philosophies, introducing them to participants to get an insight of the projects. Stay put for the next part of this four part series about International Open Data Day Stockholm 2016. Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 25 Our blog post with the invitation to the event is published here.

Introducing our crowdsourcing template and why we’re building it.

- February 11, 2016 in crowdsourcing, Featured, General, Open Innovation, template

The crowdfunding market in Belgium is getting bigger every year and societal focused efforts are equally increasing, which we support with lots of enthusiasm. That’s why early 2014, iDROPS and Open Knowledge Belgium started to brainstorm on how we could potentially provide real added value in relation to more traditional crowdfunding channels.

MEET W4P

Finally I can say we’re building our interpretation of the ideal platform for small to medium scale social, local and open innovation projects. And we’re not afraid to share the details before it’s finished, as sharing is the whole point. Our Open Source template will give anyone access to a one-project-a-time platform to ask for funding, volunteers, coaches and/or materials. That means you own the data AND the platform. And anyone does mean anyone, from cities and foundations to community or neigbourhood groups. If you can host it, you can own it. (Even if you can’t, we can always help along.) The W4P stands for “We for purpose, we for people…”

WE CELEBRATE WITH DATA

That’s not all. In our preliminary stage we did a first screening of the Belgian crowdfunding market, as crowdsourcing is still an early-stage concept, and we’ve gathered our key findings and data in the infograph below. Think we missed something? Have a look at our spreadsheet containing our online search results and let us know.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

We’re building on this project together with Open Knowledge Belgium, iDROPS and Underlined as we speak (I mean write). The first pilot projects will launch in April and we will do a full release later this year. Want to know more about this thing? Want to contribute? Want to setup an own instance of W4P? Just head over to W4P.be and contact us! This project is being funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme through the Chest-project Call 3 crowdfunding-in-minimal-theme

Crowdsourcing av Allmänna Handlingar genom projektet “Fråga Staten” av Open Knowledge Sweden!

- June 4, 2015 in crowdsourcing, Fråga Staten, FrågaStaten, FROIDE, open-government, opengov, OpenSpending

Hur öppet är Sverige egentligen? Den svenska offentlighetsprincipen är den äldsta informationsfrihetslagen i världen. Lagen är en grundbult i svensk demokrati och spelar en ovärderlig roll i vår förmåga att granska staten och möjliggör positiv samhällsutveckling som exempel av medborgardialog. Men hur har utvecklingen skett med denna funktion som demokratiskt fundament i ett digitalt informationssamhälle? Open Knowledge Sweden är en ideell organisation som verkar för ökad tillgång till öppen information. Genom att sjösätta en plattform som gör det lättare för individer och organisationer att begära ut allmänna handlingar, vill Open Knowledge Sweden utveckla och underlätta användandet av offentlighetsprincipen även i ett digitalt samhälle. “Tillsammans med experter från näringsliv, forskning och samhälle har VINNOVA gjort bedömningen att FrågaStaten kan bidra tillatt visa värdet av öppna data. – VINNOVA, April 2015 Stockholm, Sverige, 4 Juni 2015 — Målet med Fråga Staten är att frigöra det sociala och ekonomiska värdet som tillkommer från den öppna tillgången av allmänna handlingar. Open Knowledge Sweden vill speciellt belysa hur öppen information i ett nordiskt sammanhang leder till positiv och hållbar samhällsutveckling. Ett av målen är också att uppmärksamma offentlighetsprincipens fundamentala roll i vår demokrati. Genom en överskådlig plattform byggd på mjukvaran FROIDE kommer Fråga Staten göra det lätt och bekvämt för medborgare att använda offentlighetsprincipen. Plattformen kommer tillåta användare att begära ut och ta del av allmänna handlingar genom en digitaliserad och automatiserad samlingsplats. Samtidigt kommer den minska arbetsbelastningen för offentlig sektor. Den sökbara databasen med utgivna allmänna handlingar leder till minskade förfrågningar av samma dokument och möjliggör istället för tjänstemän att behandla andra ärenden. Det enda manuella arbetet som projektet kräver är sekretessprövning innan handlingen publiceras på webben. Liknande tjänster baserade på FROIDE har framgångsrikt lanserats i bland annat Tyskland och Österrike. Förväntade resultat är hundratals till tusentals begärda offentliga handlingar av medborgare, samt ett underlättat och därmed ökat användande av allmänna handlingar för privat och professionellt bruk, t.ex. journalistiskt arbete. I samband med utvecklingen och lanseringen av plattformen välkomnar Open Knowledge Sweden varmt intresse från journalister, tjänstemän i offentlig sektor och medborgare att medskapa för att göra den så bra som möjligt!
