#ODISC - Open Data for Innovation and Smart Citizenship

The age of the Internet Economy, it is a requirement to have basic Digital skills. It's also important to be knowledgeable about the world and systems around us. Open Data can help accelerate this cause.

Open Data refers to data that is freely available, can be accessed, used and/or changed and republished by anyone.

This is not a new concept but has been given a greater spotlight recently to promote Open Governance and Democracy.
