On Saturday 6th March 2021, the eleventh Open Data Day took place with people around the world organising hundreds of events to celebrate, promote and spread the use of open data. Thanks to generous support from key funders, the Open Knowledge Foundation was able to support the running of more than 60 of these events via our mini-grants scheme.
This event received an Open Knowledge Foundation mini-grant thanks to support from Microsoft.
On the 7th of March 2020, we launched the MapaTanda project which seeks to improve both the quantity and quality of data in OpenStreetMap that is important and relevant to members of the older adult and ageing population (60+ years old) in the Philippines. During the event, we engaged with members of OpenStreetMap community, the representatives of the local governments and most importantly, the older adult population as well as organisations working with or representing them to seek their support in the MapaTanda project.
What's the one thing that every single person alive right now has in common? We're all getting older.— SmartCT (@SmartCTorg) March 5, 2021

We love Open Data Day because it not only promotes awareness on the importance and use of open data but it also give us an opportunity to work and mingle with like-minded individuals in order to build and strengthen the community.
