To broaden understanding in Nepal of the importance of open data the D4D Program supported the production of a video in Nepali and English that documented the Open Data Day celebrations in 2018
On March 3, Open Data Day Nepal 2018 with as theme ‘Open Data For Everyone’ was celebrated at Patan Durbar Square and Museum. The day was jointly organized under the banner of Open Nepal by Accountability Lab, Bikas Udhyami, Center for Data Journalism, Freedom Forum, Kathmandu Living Labs, Local Interventions Group and Open Knowledge Nepal.
Following the celebrations, a short film was made to commemorate the day and increase awareness on what is open data and what it means for Nepal. To learn more about open data and the open data day, please find the link to the short film here.
If you produce data, publish it. If you have data, use it. If you don’t have data, demand it.
