Festival de Datos
7–9 November, 2023 | Punta del Este, Uruguay
Celebrating data ideas and action that help people and planet
Rapid innovations in technology and timely data collection, access, and use are needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

Festival de Datos aims to strengthen data communities and our collective ability to unlock the value of data for all as we strive to achieve the Agenda 2030.
