Open Data Policies (WWC Sprint 010)


Start Date: January 13, 2020
Duration: 4 weeks
Public policy is essential because it demonstrates public commitment to lasting change. An open data policy should establish formal governance processes to make public data-sharing institutional and sustainable. Open data policy can not only help cities establish what data will be public or kept private, but can also help build public trust by demonstrating the city’s commitment to lasting transparency and accountability. Cities can go one step further and use policy-drafting to begin engaging residents in a conversation about what open data they would like to see. Join the Sunlight Foundation for this quick Sprint that will lead you through the process of generating your own open data policy.
