Our conversation will go around the globe, and we will explore these questions:

  • Why is data important for promoting social good?
  • How can we ensure that access to data leaves no one behind?
  • What’s the most urgent data gap that needs to be filled to promote social good?
  • What role should business play in harnessing the data revolution for social good?
  • What role do civil society and the nonprofit sector play in promoting uses of data for social good?
  • What are examples where data has improved people’s lives?
  • What tools can we use to promote data for social good?
  • What are the limits to #OpenData?

You can find us at #NPTechChat. It would great to have the digital development community engaged in the conversation! More information is herehttp://www.cipe.org/blog/2016/09/14/why-is-data-important-for-social-good/#.V-BBZ_ArLcs.
