Why does GovHack matter

Formed with the objective to raise the profile of open government data, GovHack has since evolved to encompass the following objectives:
► To provide an opportunity through open data for government, citizens and industry to collaborate, gain knowledge and develop new skills;
► To showcase open data as a mechanism for identifying and solving deep-rooted social, economic and environmental challenges;
► To impress upon Government the economic and societal value of quality, machine- readable, standardised open data;
► To highlight the increasing value of open data as a tool to promote transparency, strengthen democracy, and develop trust.

Purpose

We are a festival of ideas using open government data to make our communities better places
