Open Up is a civic technology lab that uses data and technology to drive social change. It does so by opening up data sources to the public, building an active citizenry by increasing interactions between the public and government, and collaborating with civil society, media, government and techies through community outreach projects and hosting meetings. Open Up supports civil society organisations, government departments, as well as active citizens engaged in sustainable development by filling the technology gap as a means to build an eco-system of socially oriented data consumers and producers within society.
