Celebrating the tenth Open Data Day on Saturday 7th March 2020 (blogpost from OKFN CEO)

Hi everyone,

As things gear up for the tenth Open Data Day tomorrow (Saturday 7th March 2020), Catherine Stihler, CEO of the Open Knowledge Foundation, has published a blogpost highlighting some of the exciting events we’re helping to support via our mini-grants scheme this year as well as reminding everyone why open data is important: https://blog.okfn.org/2020/03/06/celebrating-the-tenth-open-data-day-on-saturday-7th-march-2020/

During Open Data Day itself, I’ll be working to highlight all the best events taking place all over the world via the OKFN channels. Please tag @OKFN on Twitter or email network@okfn.org if you want me to see your message.
