Over the last 18 months Open Data Manchester has been co-designing a Declaration for Responisible and Intelligent Data Practice with the public, private, academic, civil society and voluntary sectors in Greater Manchester to create a shared vision of what best practice in data looks like and avoid unintended consequences and harms. The Declaration has 23 principles in nine themes covering - common principles, collecting and using data, good governance, respect for all, system design, procurement, sharing knowledge, open data and environmental impact.
We will be announcing the release of version 1.0 of the Declaration’s statement of intent on Friday and over the coming months developing the implementation guide and governance framework.
The initiative is being supported by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Manchester Digital - the sectoral support association for digital in Greater Manchester. The website can be found here www.declaration.org.uk
