Best wishes

Unfortunately we are so far from Washington. We african journalists need such oppotunities to master our interest in datajournalism. We hope one day such workshops will comme near to us.

What is data journalism? Why does it matter? How has the maturing
field of data science changed the direction of journalism and global investigative
reporting? Our speakers will discuss the implications for policymakers and
institutional accountability, and how the balance of power in information
gathering is shifting worldwide, with implications for decision-making and
open government.

Wednesday, July 30th, 10:00am- 12:00pm, EDT

5th Floor Conference Room, Woodrow Wilson Center, Washington, DC
