Open Knowledge International is a global non-profit organisation focused on realising open data’s value to society by helping civil society groups access and use data to take action on social problems. Open Knowledge International does this in three ways:
1.) We show the value of open data for the work of civil society organizations; 2.) We provide organisations with the tools and skills to effectively use open data; 3.) We make government information systems responsive to civil society.
Open Knowledge International is a worldwide network of people passionate about openness, using advocacy, technology and training to unlock information and enable people to work with it to create and share knowledge.
