How to Request a new Local Group


This topic is to make requesting new Local Groups a repeatable process. We have 59 countries in the Open Knowledge network but only 8 Local Groups at present.

To request a new Local Group, add a New Topic in the Local Groups category. Include:

  • the text you’d like to have in your “About this category” topic. (You can change this later)
  • the @name of the existing forum member you’d like associated with your “About” topic.

After you’ve added the post, one of our staff or volunteers will set up your Category. This usually takes 1-5 days. There are a number of things to do behind the scenes beyond just adding a category. (We’re still refining this process).

After your Local Group is established we can help you:
