There is huge potential for data to help tackle major issues, such as the cost-of-living crisis and public health emergencies, but many of these solutions require public trust and support. We believe that the most effective and inclusive way to earn this is through engaging with communities.

We set out on a mission to find a way to not only bring London’s residents into the fold, but the organisations, institutions and local authorities that have the power make the decisions, drive the changes and create the impact as well.

London Data Week was our answer to this – providing a platform and fostering collaboration between the people and the organisations that make London the great city it is.

In 2023, we made it happen for the first time, and we never looked back.
