Workshop on How to Benefit from Data in Digital Age
Course Date: March 7-9, 2017
The saying “what gets measured, gets managed” is more true today than ever. We are now in a time when data is overflowing; information is available from so many sources and so fast that sometimes we end up not making any sense of the happenings. And unanalysed data is as good as data not collected. So, processing data and information is the new way to communicate.
This three-day hands-on workshop is specially structured to build the skills required to access data, analyse and present it in a coherent and lucid format. The workshop will be led by data specialists, journalists and communication experts at Down to Earth (DTE) and the Centre for Science and Environment

For an organization especially NGOs to exist with relevance particularly for the grassroot experiments, data collection (primary) by them needs to be analysed, interpreted and presented."
