Endangered Data Week is a grassroots effort to:
- Raise awareness of threats to publicly available data of all kinds, across sectors and disciplines
- Provide opportunities to explore the power dynamics of data creation, sharing, privacy, and retention
- Build community capacity by teaching ways to make #EndangeredData more accessible and secure
An annual series of events, coordinated across campuses, nonprofits, libraries, citizen science initiatives, and cultural heritage institutions and spanning disciplines and types of datasets can shed light on public information that is in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost.
Through this project, we hope to raise awareness of different types of threats to publicly available data; engage with the power dynamics involved in data creation, sharing, and retention; foster concrete skills and collaborative projects; and highlight work to make endangered data more secure and accessible.
