The Open Data Charter was launched at the margins of the 2015 United Nations General Assembly after a global consultation by key representatives from governments and leading organisations set out six key Principles, including that data should be open by default, timely and interoperable. Since then over a 150 governments and organizations have joined this movement to shape purpose-driven open data policies and practices around the world — from New Zealand to Kenya, or Buenos Aires to Ontario. We aim to solve some of the most pressing policy challenges of our time, create just societies and inclusive economies.
