About this Event

11:00 - 12:00

Semi-regular sessions


There is a lot of coverage about the impact of the virus nationally but a majority of citizens' concerns will be focused locally. They want to know how their local area will be affected - businesses, education, social care, transport, even green space and parks. Where is the data about the local perspective? Who is working on what, and how can others get involved?

This is a semi-regular meeting to connect with new people, share work, get project updates, and more. To get a better understanding of the #OpenDataSavesLives meetings so far, please visit the website where you can find recordings of previous sessions, notes, useful articles and more.

Share your projects, questions, data sources, etc.


Where is the link to the Zoom session?

The sessions are completely 'open' as everyone is welcome to register, but in order to help keep the sessions safe from gatecrashers we do not post the link anywhere online. The only way to get the link to the session is to register via Eventbrite and then we send the details out before the session begins.

I can't find the email with the details.

When we send the event details, it will not come from 'ODI Leeds.' It will come from Eventbrite and will have the event title in the subject line. So a couple of things could have happened here:

  • If you are using a company-issued device, it's possible that emails from services like Eventbrite are automatically blocked or sent to junk folders. Please check all of your email folders OR use a non-work email to register.
  • You've entered your email incorrectly at the time of registration. You will know this has happened because you won't receive the automatic 'you have registered for this event' welcome email. If this is the case, you can contact the team at ODI Leeds to manually change your registration info.
  • It has simply been buried somewhere in busy inboxes. We can relate. We send out more than one reminder, including one just before the session begins, so please keep an eye on your inbox.

When will I be sent the Zoom details?

We send out at least two reminders . Starting w/c 27 April, we will send out a reminder email the day before the session, and a reminder on the day 20 minutes before the session begins.
