YOUTHFUL CITIES OPEN DATA LITERACY + ACTIVATION PROGRAM: OPEN UP

Youthful Cities Open Data Literacy & Activation Program: Open Up is seeking to revolutionize the way youth-serving organizations affect change in their communities. By empowering organizations with the tools to activate open data, they can expand the reach of their work and connect with new audiences (funders, policymakers, community members) in meaningful evidence-based ways.

Open data is free to use. You just need to know what it is, where to find it and how to make good use of it.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY

“As someone who came in with very minimal experience using data in any capacity it was nice to see how prepared you were to teach me and others who might have been in the same boat, how to use data and how easy it could be.” -Skills Canada Corporation

“It was a very positive learning experience. I was challenged and taken beyond my comfort zone, yet felt supported throughout the course.” – Jack.Org

“The workshop on storytelling and the idea of making knowledge more accessible, especially if I’m working with communities creating infographics and presenting data in accessible ways is going to be very important in my future work” – York University – The Jean Augustine Canadian Youth Initiatives & Data Hub
