#AirHack 2

Location: Online webinar

Date: 01 October 2020

ODI Leeds will be hosting #AirHack2 on the 1 October 2020.

Back in July they hosted an online discussion and ideas session to find out what data was being published, what might be missing and what people wanted to see for the next event.

There were some broad themes identified during the session that had potential, these were:

  1. Data and Standards
  2. Making the link to health
  3. Getting people involved

Find out more about the discussion and ideas session here.

This will be the second #AirHack event that ODI Leeds have hosted, the first was back in 2017 in response to the starting headlines about air quality. A lot has happened since 2017 and many organisations are realising the benefits of releasing open data and people in general are becoming more aware of the climate and the effects of air quality. Overall innovating with data to help respond to critical challenges in the environment is a core theme that has emerged.

If you are interested in attending the event register to take part on Eventbrite.

Calderdale DataWorks also has a range of different datasets that relate directly and indirectly to Air Quality, including:
