Instant inspiration: The journeys our clothes make
Many donate their used clothes to charity – and then what happens? Finnish Minna Knus-Galán equipped six pieces of clothes with gps trackers, and they ended up in strange places. Her colleague Jessica Stolzmann used gps trackers to dig into what happens to the clothes we return to online stores. Do you think they go directly back to the store? Think again!

Instant inspiration: Data-driven collaboration focuses on domestic violence
In the midst of a national lockdown, already overcrowded women’s shelters throughout Germany found themselves turning away dozens - sometimes even hundreds - of women in order to meet COVID-19 restrictions. While each federal state maintains its own system for funding shelters, there was an obvious national trend: Not enough space.
From scraping to crowdsourcing, this session delves into Correctiv.Lokal’s data-driven approach to researching how women’s shelters through Germany struggle to meet the needs of survivors of domestic violence. We’ll also talk about how we worked with local newsrooms throughout the country to bring our research to a wider audience.

Can you do advanced research with a tight deadline? Get together with a few friends (or participate alone) and get ready for Quiztime! Quiztime is a group of journalists that post an OSINT challenge on Twitter every day - today they challenge the Dataharvest participants to a Europe-wide friendly competition.

Here a few things to know before the session:
  • Please be on time, so you hear the instructions from the beginning 😊
  • Please sign on with microphone active, not only headphones
  • For the research challenges, you will work together in groups in break-out rooms. You will be allocated to a room automatically – for the following questions, please go to the same room to meet your co-quizzers again.
  • When you have the answer, please write it in the chat in the main room.
  • The break-out rooms last a defined number of minutes. They close automatically and send you back to the main room. You must allow the system to use your camera and microphone for each change – sorry for the bother.
