Como seu evento celebrou os Dados Abertos?

12 people attended the DataDive and everyone aimed to make the best utilisation of the available data to generate more user case stories and encourage others to publish the data. Nikesh Balami, CEO/co-founder of Open Knowledge Nepal, started the event by welcoming all the individuals and oriented on the tentative goal of the gathering. He highlighted the core values of coming together as a community and contributing to the common goal. The gathering was more of an informal collaborative forum, and it was rightly highlighted by Arogya Koirala from Kathmandu Living Labs. He opined the need for developing a peer learning and collaborative open community rather than a top-down approach of coaching the participants. It was interesting to note, how all participants passively agreed to the notion of more informal, open peer-based learning in community settings.

After the introduction session, the event free flowed. Everyone worked on what best fits the goal of the event, as per their expertise and through collaboration. Some of the works included:

Despite being in the high-risk zone due to climate change, we realised that the climate and environment datasets related to Nepal are very difficult to access. Most of the teams struggle to find the datasets and in many cases, the available datasets are incomplete and are in unstructured formats so, lots of time was consumed in data cleaning.

Participants got to learn new things from each other and some of them successfully published the scrapped and datasets on the portal. Some of the participants showed great enthusiasm and have committed to continue the work of opening up climate and environment data of Nepal.
