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.

362 Jahre später. Quo vadis, Demografie?
Die Demografie blickt auf eine große Tradition zurück. Sie wurde 1662 mit der Bevölkerungsstudie des Londoner Händlers John Graunt begründet. Daran erinnert jedes Jahr der European Day of Demography am 4. Februar. Aber wie steht es um ihre Zukunft? Welche Themen treten heute in den Vordergrund? Und was sind die wichtigsten künftigen Herausforderungen, bei denen die Demografie Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft beraten kann – und sollte?
