    We live in the age of information. Therefore we support the work of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany with a donation.

    Since information and access to information is key in our world, we support the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany. With many different projects the organization aims to spread knowledge in the fields of politics, education and research.

    The Open Knowledge Foundation Germany is a nonprofit organization that advocates open knowledge, open data, transparency, and civil participation.

    One of their project Jugend hackt aims to empower youths with technical skills and to familiarize them with the creative and political contexts in which these skills can be applied. Other projects like 2030-Watch, Datenschule and FragDenStaat aim to strengthen the political pariticipation, political education or improve the possibility to form ones own opinion through data visualization and information provision.

    Following the slogan "Think global, act local" we are happy to support the german chapter of the Open Knowledge International organization with a donation. We think their work is very important for our society.
