CKAN is now a Digital Public Good – Open Knowledge Foundation blog

“CKAN is now a Digital Public Good (DPG). The Digital Public Good Alliance approved Open Knowledge’s application and has added it to the Digital Public Good Registry. The goal of the DPGA and its registry is to promote digital public goods in order to create a more equitable world. Being recognised as a DPG increases the visibility, support for, and prominence of open projects that have the potential to help attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) put forward by the United Nations (UN). To become a digital public good, all projects are required to meet the DPG Standard to ensure that projects truly encapsulate open source principles. 

CKAN is an open source tool for making open data portals. We help people, institutions, and businesses manage and publish data collections, which means opening information to the public that not only fosters transparency and democratizes knowledge but also helps us as a society to make better decisions….”
