Application Deadline: 28 February 2019 (5pm GMT)
Applications are now open for designers, journalists, data researchers and web developers to attend this year’s DATA4CHANGE flagship event in Nairobi, Kenya. Do you have what it takes to join our new cohort of talented people who are passionate about data and design for social good?
DATA4CHANGE is a 5-day design sprint where the best local, regional and international talent in data, design, journalism and technology are teamed up with NGOs that collect data.
Together, they create high-level prototypes of data-driven projects or campaigns aimed at solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges. This year, the theme for the event is digital rights and freedom of expression online in Africa and the Middle East.
A DATA4CHANGE event is fast paced, so you need to be someone who thrives under pressure. You also need to love teamwork, because DATA4CHANGE is all about collaboration and skill sharing across borders and disciplines.
