Sometimes, the data is out there, somewhere. Sometimes it is not. In such occasions, wouldn't it be great if you could ask thousands of people from your audience (and outside of it) for information regarding a story for which you need individual data points? There are quite a few free and open source platforms and tools that can help when it comes to crowdsourcing data and information. In this session, we will hear about some of those platforms and tools: CrowdNewsroom (developed by German investigative non-profit Correctiv), Taskforce (developed by the Journalism++ network) and OpenSchufa (developed by Berlin-based research and advocacy organisation AlgorithmWatch). Come and learn how to conduct your own crowdsourced investigation!
