Subject: [GPSDD Partners] Launching the Open Data Day 2020 mini-grant scheme
Dear GPSDD partners,
The Open Knowledge Foundation is happy to announce the launch of the mini-grant scheme for Open Data Day 2020<https://blog.okfn.org/2020/01/16/announcing-the-launch-of-the-open-data-day-2020-mini-grant-scheme/>.
This scheme will provide small funds to support the organisation of open data-related events across the world on Saturday 7th March 2020.
To be awarded a mini-grant, events must fit into one of the four Open Data Day tracks:
1) Environmental data
2) Tracking public money flows
3) Open mapping
4) Data for equal development
Thanks to the generous support of this year’s mini-grant funders – Datopian, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Hivos, the Latin American Open Data Initiative (ILDA), Mapbox, Open Contracting Partnership and the World Resources Institute – we will be looking to give out 60 mini-grants this year.
Applications for the mini-grant scheme must be submitted before midnight GMT on Sunday 9th February 2020 via filling in this form<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSftekIb4Rn-W62RkWsDHeSKu1VD3QaWmlDNdhmfdaKItkoCSQ/viewform>.
I hope that some of your organisations or those in your networks will be keen on applying for a mini-grant this year to support Open Data Day-related events all across the world.
I would appreciate any and all help with spreading the word about this opportunity.
