Dear all,

I’m Anna Alberts from the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany, where I’ve
been working on a new project called OpenBudgets.eu since April. Our
goal is to develop a platform for European Budget and Spending Data.

Last week we brought together 30 budget and spending enthusiasts from
across Europe. Our discussion focused on how data-driven approaches in
advocacy, policy-making and journalism can lead towards a
democratisation of fiscal information.

Personally, I cherished the opportunity to (re)convene people from
countries as diverse as Albania, Ukraine, Netherlands and Spain. Across
these countries, the past few years have established an exciting array
of techniques to explain public policy to a wider audience, and to
combat corruption.

Together with Cecile Le Guen from Open Knowledge International, we will
be sharing the great projects that were presented during this workshop
here on the forum and on the mailing list.

We invite you to comment, ask questions, and - most importantly - invite
you to share the discoveries made in your own projects here as well.

Groetjes, liebe grosse, grosses bisses, ciao,
