Como seu evento celebrou os Dados Abertos?

We celebrated Open Data Day with 10 beautiful young girls and five women because of Covid-19 we could not reach our target number.

We covered three topics and all we encouraged all participants to join in the discussions. Topic 1 was "What is restricting women/girls from getting data about economic development?" We got a common answer "'gender inequality and education. Topic 2 asked what are the resources in our community which we can use to develop economically? The answer was adding value to traditional crops, access to the market and make use of available opportunities and resources. Topic 3 was about how one can get access to data resources in community and the sharing of available resources and opportunities.

Lições aprendidas no evento:

  1. Information about markets, prices and weather seasons can be found on smartphones or they can use our office computers for such information.

  2. Gender inequality is the biggest problem in community which hinders women and girls from economic development and it can be addressed starting from our homes to schools and society
