Since its launch in September 2015, support for the Open Data Charter has grown globally. Governments, NGOs, private enterprise, and citizens have begun to use the Charter as a valuable tool to bring together the open data community and implement open data in policy and practice. As the Charter itself continues to grow and develop valuable resources, the plenary will reflect on gains that the Charter has helped create and future opportunities for increased collaboration and sharing across the open data field.
