Press Room

Welcome to the Press and Media pages. Here you will find the latest news on the Open Knowledge Foundation.

The Open Knowledge Foundation is a global movement to open up the world’s data and see it used and useful, empowering citizens with new knowledge and insights, and enabling fair and sustainable societies. The Foundation catalyses activities which promote and build on freely reusable open data and open content – including public information, publicly funded research and public domain cultural content.

Data journalism

The Data Journalism Handbook is a free, openly-licensed reference book for journalists on how to use data to improve the news.  It is also now available in French, Spanish and  Russian. The European Journalism Centre is coordinating translations in Chinese, Arabic and Portuguese with local partners.

If you are interested in data journalism join our data driven journalism mailing list, co-hosted with the European Journalism Centre.
