  2. 2. OpenCoesione •Background: the Italian Government and the EU Cohesion (aka. Regional) Policy co-fund everything from large infrastructures to small aids for local projects The Italian Government released as Open Data detailed information on all the 800k+ projects funded in Italy (almost 80 billion Euros) Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved

  4. 4. Monithon: OpenCoesion e for normal people Monitoring Marathon fosters (group) civic use of Open Data makes it easier for ordinary citizens to: • work together on the raw data from OpenCoesione • link to them status reports from the field • connect everything into structured stories • stimulate local administrators and entrepreneurs to work better Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved
  5. 5. How does Monithon wo rk? Platform based on Ushahidi • 10-page end-user manual • Proposed as collective activity (Monithon Days) Initially conceived by the OpenCoesione team Later become an independent project by the Italian “civic hacking” community Partners with local activist groups (e.g. Libera, a national anti-Mafia NGO) Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved

  8. 8. ASOC (A Scuola di O pen Coesione) “Monithon in and for schools” Data-based storytelling on matters of civic interest by high school students Includs ad-hoc training course on OpenCoesione data first cycle involved 7 schools across Italy in 2013/14 other schools should follow this year Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved
  9. 9. Catramiamoci Students in Palermo decided to compare bus stop positions, and bus transit times with planned performances of new light railway to be developed with POR-FESR funds found in OpenCoesione The City of Palermo didn't release those data The students went to get them by themselves, on the ground and online Eventually, following that and other pressures, the City released the official version of the same dataset as Open Data Proved to students feasibility and value of new ways to interact with local administrators for the common good Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved

  11. 11. What may we learn fr om these stories? Never expect, or use as excuse for doing noting, that “everybody will, or should, use Open Data” • That NEVER was (or should have been) the goal • The goal is to give equal access opportunities to ALL who can effectively use the data But widen support and usage of Open Data as early as possible Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved
  12. 12. What may we learn fr om these stories? (2) Never mind about “poor data quality” • Otherwise you will never get anything done • Of course data today suck! But... • That's why we want them open: to improve them together The point is never to make of data opening a witch hunt • Make clear that you know that who has “ugly data” today is not “guilty” • Explain that not releasing anything is very often worse that releasing “ugly data” Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved
  13. 13. What may we learn fr om these stories? (3) Use opening of Data as occasion to streamline procedures • If it is too expensive or complicated to release your data, it often means you are not working well Make citizens enter structured data (e.g. Company names in Monithon reports) Extend the model to work without assistance or input (not even the initial raw data!) from the above • E.G. Make schools produce and use Open Data in normal activities by themselves Marco Fioretti (marco@digifreedom.net) 2014/11/26 First National OGP Forum, Skopje http://mfioretti.com http://stop.zona-m.net/ Some Rights Reserved
