Public Makers is an Erasmus+ project 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 was to identify the challenges, opportunities and good practices. This helped to understand how and which initiatives are currently developed in Europe regarding open data.
The final goal of this project is now achieved! You can reach out to our Public Makers online platform which provides:
- written learning material, webinars and quizzes for young people
- concrete training material and resources for trainees and potential trainers
- resources that support trainers to implement activities with youth
