EITI Data Storytelling Bootcamp

EITI, Omidyar Network, UNEP, World Bank and IMF, invite EITI stakeholders to a data storytelling bootcamp. The goal of the bootcamp is  - in line with the Conference theme of transitioning “From Reports to Results” - to share experiences and to work together to put the growing amount of EITI data to use. The longer-term objectives are to demonstrate that disclosing EITI Reports as Open Data leads to a range of benefits for all stakeholders, and to develop a community of data storytellers and Open Data experts in the EITI countries.

Participants of the Data Storytelling Bootcamp will get an introduction to of a range of EITI data projects during the morning, get to know them better and then finally select one workstream. After lunch, the participants of each workstream will sit together and develop a story, a concept, a visual or another kind of product that will be demonstrated in the final session.
