Limited Capacity seats available


Open Data still largely remain theory: there remains a need to translate usually complex data into actionable information by providing it in ways and formats that are understandable and relevant to maximize their potential to affect change. Infomediaries take on a pivotal role in this process. They assume a public information responsibility, gathering, analyzing and disseminating data and translating it into actionable information that engages and empowers citizens, and lead to collective action. But is their role sufficiently understood?

Julia Hoffmann (Hivos), Shita Laksmi (SEATTI) and Raisa Valda (La Pública) will talk about what it takes for infomediaries to do their job and will present two successful cases of infomediaries' work at its best: DataBO (Bolivia) and #Hackjak2015 (Indonesia)
