Welcome to the agenda for our first ever IATI ‘Virtual Community Exchange’ (VCE), one of two online events taking place in 2021 to bring together the global IATI community. Join IATI’s first VCE on 13 April 2021 to help us consider IATI’s progress vis-à-vis the current state of transparency and open data in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals and COVID-19. During the VCE, you will hear about recent and upcoming IATI activities and how you can participate, be inspired during sessions led by other members of the IATI community and engage with peers in the open data and transparency space. Anyone with an interest in open data, transparency or development cooperation is welcome to join! 

The VCE will offer two to three parallel sessions simultaneously, and participants are welcome to attend a session from each time slot, or to ’pick and choose’, only attending sessions that fit their needs. Find out how to get prepared with this one-pager, ‘Getting Ready for the VCE’, or view the comprehensive logistical note for the event.

Questions? Drop us a line at info@iatistandard.org or post in our digital community platform, IATI Connect. We look forward to seeing you virtually on 13 April!

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have experienced an accelerated dependency on virtual community tools. In times of increasing Zoom fatigue, what are key ingredients for compelling and sustainable virtual engagements, and how can we learn lessons from successful external networks? This session, co-organised with Bond's IATI working group, OpenStreetMap Mali and Open Contracting Partnership, will provide you with inspiration for effective virtual engagement, show how you can engage on our digital community platform, IATI Connect, and foster a discussion with external networks on how we can team up and draw in new audiences. In short: are our virtual Communities prepared for the future? Tune in, share your ideas and get inspired!
