Open Data Day 2020 will take place on Saturday 7th March

Dear all,

My name is Stephen and I work for the Open Knowledge Foundation.

Following the sad news that @oscarmontiel will be moving on from the Open Knowledge Foundation, I will be taking over the work he was doing to help make Open Data Day 2020 a great success. My email address is if anyone needs to get in touch with me.

For now, I wanted to share that we’ve just published a blogpost confirming that Saturday 7th March 2020 will be the date for Open Data Day 2020:

Oscar has also made sure that the Open Data Day website has been updated:

The hashtags for the event will be #OpenDataDay and #ODD2020.

Please spread the word and let me know if you have any questions.

Stephen Abbott Pugh
