Festival de Datos 2023

7 November 2023|Event

The Festival de Datos takes place in Punta del Este, from November 7-9, 2023, bringing together more than 400 delegates from governments, multilateral organizations, the private sector, academia and civil society of various nationalities.

The event is organized by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and sponsored by the Government of Uruguay, represented by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and supported by the Ministry of Tourism and the Agency for Electronic Government and the Information and Knowledge Society (AGESIC).

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires rapid technological innovations and timely data collection, access, and use. However, the data revolution also raises questions around power, privacy, and participation. Common spirit, dialogue, and advocacy are needed to drive progress on global goals. That is exactly what the 2023 Data Festival is all about.

The event will also aim to provide spaces for collaboration and cooperation, where many aspects of data in our societies will be showcased so that together we can advocate for well-funded, inclusive, coherent, and impactful information systems that improve people's lives.
