Open Knowledge aspires to a society in which everyone has access to essential information: a society in which powerful institutions are easy to understand and explain, and in which information vital to addressing challenges such as poverty and climate change is publicly available.
The organization focuses on making government information and publicly financed research available and accessible. Open Knowledge not only works with governments to persuade them to release information, but also keeps in touch with reporters and NGOs to ensure they use that information to create insight and drive change.
Adessium Foundation is supporting Open Knowledge’s activities focused on increasing the transparency of government spending in the European Union.
