Friday lunchtime lecture: Data for Democracy

Friday 22 May 2015, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

The Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

How can open data improve people's access to information on political candidates and democratic processes? Find out with this ODI Fridays, lunchtime lecture.

Democracy Club is a group of volunteers that aims to increase the quantity, quality and accessibility of information on election candidates, politicians and democratic processes through digital tools, microvolunteering and collaboration with like-minded organisations.

Web developer & designer Sym Roe talked about the story behind YourNextMP, who reused the data, as well as the other Democracy Club projects and where they’re heading in the future.
