Hosting a scope-a-thon is just the beginning to nurturing a robust ecosystem of open data users and problem-solvers.
When local governments act as convening partners for community innovation, events like scope-a-thons can provide just the beginning of a long-term commitment to community co-creation and problem-solving.
For local governments leveraging scope-a-thons to gather stakeholders from across backgrounds, providing physical support, and sharing open data and information that meet community needs are absolutely essential. Data providers and community partners alike can benefit from multi-stakeholder collaboration that is targeted, data-driven, and tailored to communities' real needs.
We hope that this playbook will inspire data providers, local conveners, community partners, data intermediaries, and technologists alike to adapt and explore potential models for better community-problem solving.
