Open Data Design Sprint
We will conduct a workshop in which we will go through all the stages of a Design Sprint (http://www.gv.com/sprint/): Idea, Build, Launch Learn,  in an hour for an Open Data Product:
- First we will share ideas of Open Data Products
- We will build a napkin prototype with the help of Product Managers
- We will launch our Prototype within ourselves
- We will share iterate our napkin prototype with the ideas received from testing

Even though participant won’t get to create and prototype their idea in the session, they will understand the framework for creating better Products and leave with tools to iterate their ideas to produce better Open Data products.

Participants will also receive a package with instructions to replicate this training in their own countries and organizations

The Economic Impact of Open Data
Economic impact is a key driver of the adoption of open data by both government and industry. However, the open data sector is still struggling to understand how best to measure and frame economic impact. 
In recent years, there have been several attempts to measure the macro economic impact at global, regional, national and sector levels. For example, the European Data Portal (EDP) conducted an overview of the economic benefits of open data in Europe. In April of this year, the Ukraine released the results of a national economic impact assessment. While other studies have attempted to measure the value of open data in a particular sector eg transport. Various research methodologies have piloted, but there is still no consistent approach for conducting economic impact assessments.
In this workshop, speakers from a range of contexts will highlight recent research efforts through a case study approach. Participants are invited to share examples from their own work, and contribute to developing a shared research agenda.

Imagining the Future of Open Data
The future is exciting and scary. Is it an infinite library of knowledge or map that is a size of a country? The future is a place where you can find all animals that:  
(a) belong to the emperor
(b) are embalmed
(c) are tame
(d) are suckling pigs
(e) are sirens
(f) are fabulous

 The future holds open and closed data of every single memory and does not have a single classification at all.

Confused from the description above? Great! 
Come and join us to imagine the future in an unsession that is beyond your imagination.

The Emerging Business of Open Data
This highly interactive workshop will give participants new insights into the business applications of open data and private sector value opportunities in key sectors, supported by three real-world cases from LATAM and Kenya that demonstrate different business models and offer lessons for engaging with the private sector through public-private collaboration.

The session is co-organised by the Iniciativa Latinoamericana por los Datos Abiertos (ILDA), and the Center for Open Data Enterprise. Some of the cases we intend to review are part of a current work led by ILDA, with the support of Avinas Americas and the InterAmerican Development Bank (IADB)  that maps initiatives and organizations moving the open data and civic technology agenda further.

Putting Open Up Guides to Use: Climate Change Open Up Guide
This workshop will explore a draft version of the Open Up Guide for Climate Data now being developed under the Open Data Charter alongside the WRI and CODE in order to gather input and engage the open data community and climate change experts in developing this important resource for climate action.
Government agencies and NGOs need to collect, open, and use data of many kinds to address climate change effectively and enable stakeholders--including vulnerable communities--to prepare for climate risks and take advantage of resilience-building activities. To help meet this need, the Open Data Charter, World Resources Institute and the Center for Open Data Enterprise are developing an “Open Up Guide for Climate Data” with guidance on key national datasets. The Guide will include an accessible online repository of key use cases, data assets, and standards and key use cases, and is designed initially for use at the national level. Depending on a country’s particular needs, the data can be used for climate change mitigation, for adaptation, for reporting on climate progress, or for management of climate finance.
This workshop will engage participants in helping to refine the Guide and, in turn, will help them apply it to their own country’s circumstances and needs. The workshop will begin with a brief presentation on the Guide and then break into discussion groups based on different types of issues and applications (mitigation, resilience, etc.) The results will be improvements to the Guide, increased awareness of the application of open data for climate action, and potentially new data-driven strategies that participants can develop in addressing climate change in their own countries.
