From 2 to 8 March 2024, we celebrate the Open Data Day (ODD), an annual global event dedicated to supporting the culture of open data. Since it was established in 2010, the Open Data Day has been instrumental in promoting the use of open data within communities worldwide, fostering innovation, transparency, and collaboration.

This year's ODD, organised by the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN), involves collaboration from organisations such as Jokkolabs Banjul (Gambia)Open Knowledge GermanyOpen Knowledge Ghana, and Open Knowledge Nepal, all members of the Open Knowledge Network. To ensure broad participation, organisations worldwide host events, creating awareness and engagement on the importance of open data. The theme for ODD 2024 is 'Open Data for Advancing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)', emphasising the importance of open data in achieving the United Nations' SDGs, as outlined in the 2030 Agenda. Recently acknowledged as a digital public good for its role in advancing numerous Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), CKAN, under the ownership of the OKFN, stands out as a reliable Open Source Data Management System. It prioritises the construction of data portals, emphasising extensibility and seamless integration with other software tools.

To celebrate the Open Data Day invites you on the 8 March 2024 from 10.00 to 11.00 CET, to explore the basics of open data and learn how to use the data portal.
