At Aapti and ODI, we’re interested in participatory data and human centric design, which can be a key lever to rebalance power in the data economy. Different layers of the digital ecosystem require different modes of embedding human centric approaches to data. This workshop aims to bring these perspectives together – participants will work together to map the ecosystem of different forms of human centric approaches to data governance. The session aims to better understand how human centric approaches to data exist across different layers of the data ecosystem, from policy through to data level decision making, and what their limitations may be. Human centric data systems exist across the digital ecosystem in many different shapes and sizes, from technical approaches like personal data stores through to large scale public engagement exercises to input into data policy. In order for these methods to be harmonised, we need to better understand what these different approaches look like and how they function in practice. Mapping the ecosystem with a diverse group of participants will help to articulate a clearer map of the world of human centric data. We will first set the scene based on existing research and use cases of human centric data. Participants will then collaborate on mapping the different human centric methods the participants have encountered in their professional and personal lives, before bringing these ideas together to understand what works where.
