“I am thrilled that I attended the Youth Empowerment-Youth Leadership and Data workshop. This was, without a doubt the most learner-centered workshop I had ever attended. What I liked best about the workshop was its interactive approach. Unlike other workshops, I along with my group actually had an action plan that we were to implement.”
I did have knowledge of what open data was and how some data is freely available to everyone to use and publish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. But after taking the three days workshop, I was able to put in more information as for how one can revise, modify, and amend open data.
To triumph the practice of open data in the community, we have to have first, a medium where we can make inquiries about open data and its varied utilities. If we can aware of the community about the medium to know more about open data, a gradual practice of open data will be on the rise throughout communities.
As part of the workshop, we recently conducted awareness about the situation of paan consumption from BP Chowk to Tribhuvan Chowk in Nepalgunj and also conducted a survey on the way and identified 9 PaanPasals. And in the future, we plan to initiate similar awareness programs in different locations throughout Nepalgunj.
(Bishal KC is a recent BBA graduate from Nepalgunj. Along with his team, he recently led the Bhailo Program and now is planning to register a youth club in Nepalgunj itself to work on escalating social issues.)
The project is supported by DFID Nepal, The Asia Foundation and Development Initiatives in coordination with Nepal in Data, Open Knowledge Nepal and NAXA.
