The Datasphere Initiative’s #Youth4OurDataFuture is one of the winners of the Omidyar Network Future of Data Challenge. The competition saw hundreds of organizations apply with transformative solutions to reimagine the data economy and help build a more equitable data future for all.
The Datasphere Initiative publicly launched the project on August 30, 2023, at 3 pm – 4:30 pm CEST / 1 pm – 2:30 pm UTC during an online event.
The event presented the planned outputs of the #Youth4OurDataFuture project including the Datasphere Initiative’s plans to kick-start awareness-raising and learning campaigns, to showcase the voices and experiences of youth on how data shapes their lives. Participants also shared the work they are leading on youth digital rights and learned how they will be able to contribute to the project.
