On Our Watch hackathon

From the 29th of September to the 1st of October, for 48h, activists, journalists, dataviz specialists and coders will gather to dive into the 2014-2017 EP votes data and try to make sense of it!

What is On Our Watch?
Born from the 2016 Citizens for Europe Projects Fair, #OnOurWatchEU is a collective initiative based on co-creation. It brings together European civil society organisations and offers them a platform to assess the work of the European Parliament on a wide range of issues with the aim of informing citizens and generating debate.

Why a hackathon?
Because apps and visualizations are always more impactful than raw data and lengthy papers!
Fighting poverty, Transparency, Youth participation, Gender equality… The On Our Watch website offers insights of the work of the EP on many topics, as well as analysis of certain votes. With the hackathon and with you, we would like to further scrutinize the work of the EP in a fun and creative way!

IHECS Academy, Rue des Grands Carmes 27, 1000 Brussels.
Come as you are, with your computer, your skills and your ideas, we will take care of the rest! (food, drinks, wifi, plugs, and fun provided)

How can I join?
