Public Makers is an European program aiming at improving the usage of Open Data for young people. Open data includes all data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed by anyone. The use of open data is thus unlimited and for any purpose.
The target group of the project are young people. The main objective is, in fact, to empower young people in open data, raise awareness on the latter, and create resources for them to access the opportunities offered by open data policies.
The first step of the program is to identify the challenges, opportunities and good practices. This will help to understand how and which initiatives are currently developed in Europe regarding open data. The final goal of this project is to create an online platform which will provide:
- written learning material
- concrete training material for trainees and potential trainers
- exercises to be done for young people (non-formal education) in the form of tables and resources that support trainers to implement activities
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
