Hi all,

this is just to remind you about our small but joyful session at the OGP Global Summit, 2015, Mexico.

Open Government Data updates from around the world

So fare we have received 17 amazing applications from countries including: Germany, Brazil, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Peru, Italy, Uruguay, Malaysia, USA, Philippines, South Africa, France, Bulgaria, Paraguay, Hungary and Hong Kong.

This is exciting and I am already looking fwd this session.

If you will be coming to the OGP Mexico event and your country is not already represented, this is the time to add yourself to the list:

Please contact me if you have any questions.

All best

These updates will highlight stories of success and failure and reveal current issues and trends from the global open data community. Each participant will have 2 minutes and 1 slide.
> This session has a long tradition and was a great success at the Open Knowledge Festival in 2012/13 and 2014, and something similar was done at Open Data Conference 2015. It provides a unique opportunity to get updates from open data practitioners sharing their experience. The 60 minutes session will host up to 20 country updates providing a unique and very fast overview on what is happening around the world, surfacing unknown stories and unveiling trends. You will love it!
