Debating the Role of Data in Development at Cartagena Data Festival

Zack Brisson and Kerry Brennan will travel to Colombia from April 20-22 to participate in the Cartagena Open Data Festival. Zack will present on My Voice as an example of a data-driven feedback and accountability tool, and join a panel on embedding new ideas in institutions. The festival’s aim this year is to bring together data leaders, from civil society to government, to shape the role data will play in supporting the post-2015 UN Development Agenda. You can register to watch a livestream of key portions of the conference, and follow @kerryjbren, @theReboot, and #data2015 for updates.
