Bertelsmann Stiftung „Datendialog“

On 15 March the Bertelsmann Stiftung is hosting a “Datendialog” – a collaborative platform where volunteers and data enthusiasts come together to address data-related challenges within the foundation’s projects. The focus of this session is the population forecast in Germany, with a specific emphasis on youth. Before and during the event, participants will have a possibility to engage with demographic data from Stiftung’s wegweiser-kommune.de open data platform and to explore how this data correlates with environmental, sustainability, and economic indicators at the municipal level. It is also a great opportunity to meet other data and subject experts. The agenda and the detailed description are here and here. Applications can be made through CorrelAid, a network organisation of data volunteers following this following this link.
