Open Event Data Working Group
Welcome to the Open Event Data Working Group
The Open Event Data Working Group is a dynamic and collaborative community within the Opendata.ch association, dedicated to advancing the realms of open event data and fostering a culture of transparency and accessibility.
At the core of our mission is the Open Event Data Manifesto (Draft 0.1), which serves as the guiding compass for our endeavors. This manifesto lays down the foundational principles for our activities, emphasizing the importance of making event data openly available to all. As we progress in the coming months, we will craft an action plan aligned with the manifesto’s principles, ensuring that the power of open data drives our collective efforts.
Joining the Open Event Data Working Group is as easy as expressing your interest. If you have already shown enthusiasm for this initiative, you are already on board. For others, simply sign up to our mailing list or shoot us an email – we would love to have you with us. Your participation matters, and we are eager to include everyone interested in shaping the future of event data accessibility.
