Hi folks, we’d like to invite all OK Conference participants to an exclusive Open Development event on Thursday 19 September.

Getting Real: Evidence and Ethics for open data initiatives in development contexts http://okfnpad.org/opendevwg-okcon13
Open Knowledge Conference, Geneva
Thursday 19 September, 12:00 - 17:00 @ Universite de Geneve, Uni Mail campus, Room M 1160

A participatory workshop to bring together the core streams of this year's Open Knowledge Conference.

The themes for this workshop are:

*         Exploring theory of change concepts and evidencing impact of open initiatives, including open data and open government, on community-led development and aid programmes.
*         Ethical considerations of open initiatives in development contexts

The workshop will bring together open government, open data, transparency/accountability and open development specialists to discuss and debate the effectiveness and ethics of open initiatives. It's a space for us all to share our experiences and ask critical questions of our work in open data, t/a, governance and open development. For example, how far can we attribute changes such as increased access to or quality of community healthcare to open government or open data? Does openness really lead to greater accountability for communities, and what's the evidence?
