Every year, New Yorkers come together across the five boroughs to celebrate the City’s Open Data Law, which was signed into law on March 7, 2012. Coincidentally, the first weekend of March is also International Open Data Day. Together, we use both dates to anchor NYC’s Open Data Week and increase civic engagement with our municipal open data.
For 2021, we are going to do things a bit differently. We welcome you to attend all events virtually, including Home School of Data – which will be a curated selection of classes and workshops featuring open data.
The NYC Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics and BetaNYC are looking for virtual event ideas, and, where appropriate, socially-distanced outdoor experiences. We seek ideas that are engaging, filled with learnings, or help build a stronger community around open municipal data. Submit your ideas for interactive workshops, panels, talks, trainings, or hackathons. You do not need to have a fully fleshed out proposal to submit, and you are invited to submit more than one idea!
This call for submissions is open now until Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. (Eastern). All ideas are welcome, including preliminary ones.
