What to do with data?

  • Data and recommendations from the reports or public data platforms can be used directly in learning units within a workshop as sources of information.
  • Furthermore, they can also be considered as material that participants or organizations can work with further in their materials or texts.
  • Participants can also use them to create visualizations, such as maps or infographics.
  • In advocacy for democracy and human rights, the data these reports provide is increasingly important today.

Dealing with data and reports is a foundation for data literacy, which is in demand beyond the group of data specialists in today's data-driven society. The informed use and analysis of data provides insight into ongoing developments in society, e.g., how discourses develop in social media and which groups are gaining influence in public discourse. Population statistics, traffic or environmental data inform citizens about developments and problems in their community. Data provide also evidence about socio-political issues and justify or falsify assumptions, as such contributing to critical and systemic thinking. Initiatives, NGOs and educational institutions also use data for their own purposes. They help them to measure and present their impact in reports or to present their case in an evidence-based way.
