Our collective future depends on whether we can ensure broad sharing of digital data with due individual and group protection. For the latter, we need to establish collective primary economic rights to data. Access to community data currently held by private actors is the fundamental pre-requisite for the very act of public policy-making and ensuring a fair economy. For the public sector, this entails an imperative to change: it must henceforth be able to collect and curate data, convert it into digital intelligence and provide intelligent public services. While skills development and upgrading are needed, the more decisive challenge is one of visioning, exercising political will and managing a transition to use data for the common good.
The webinar will present the idea of community data, or community ownership of data and discuss implications for public sector politics and workers` rights.
