DATA4CHANGE helps Civil Society Organisations create powerful data-driven advocacy projects by connecting them with global and local experts in data, design, tech and journalism to forge real change.



DATA4CHANGE is a London-based non-profit that connects civil society with global creatives, supporting them to tell stories with data and forge real change. Our flagship events are 5-day residentials based in exciting locations around the world.

Since 2014, more than 200 people from over 40 countries have attended DATA4CHANGE flagship events in London, Beirut and Kampala. Although the format remains the same, each flagship event is unique. Read the write-ups to find out more, and if there’s an upcoming event, find out how you can get involved.



At our flagship events, each CSO is matched up with a multidisciplinary team, usually consisting of a data researcher, graphic designer, developer and a data journalist. Together, over five intensive days, they create a working prototype of a data-driven project aimed at solving some of the world’s most pressing social and political challenges.

Every project created at a DATA4CHANGE event has a unique style, treatment and functionality, but what they all have in common is their high quality. Explore the projects below to see what is possible to create in just a few days of collaboration.



Without our partners, we wouldn’t be able to support civil society organisations to tell important stories with their data. Some of our partners help fund or organise the events, others donate their time and expertise, and some do both. If you are interested in partnering with us, please get in touch.
