School of Data

School of Data works to empower civil society organisations, journalists and citizens with the skills they need to use data effectively in their efforts to create more equitable and effective societies.

There is huge potential to use data and open data to improve the lives of citizens around the world, especially in increasing the transparency and accountability of government.

However, many of the groups who are closest to the problems – NGOs, journalists, and citizens – currently lack the skills to use data effectively — and even an awareness of the potential of data for their work.

School of Data’s mission is to teach people how to gain powerful insights and create compelling stories using data.
