Hello! Or rather, tere!

Our sixth Data Policy Digest, bringing you all the latest data and AI policy developments, comes to you from this year’s Open Government Summit in Tallinn, where Tim, Helena and I are flying the flag for Connected by Data. We ran a workshop yesterday; give us a shout if you happen to be here in Estonia.

If not, there’s plenty to catch up on back in the UK, as parliament returns after its summer break.

If there’s something we’ve missed, something you’re up to that you’d like us to include next time or you have any thoughts on how useful the Digest is or could be, please get in touch via gavin@connectedbydata.org. We’re on Twitter @ConnectedByData and @DataReform. You can also catch up on Digest #1, Digest #2, Digest #3, Digest #4 and Digest #5.

At the Data Justice Conference in Cardiff a few weeks ago we ran the first public play test of a card game designed to support conversations about collective and participatory data governance.

It’s the first iteration of the output from our participation design lab process exploring game design both as a method for researching methods to involve communities in data governance, and as a way of generating resources that might help inspire and embed new ways of working, particularly within private sector contexts.
