We want your talent, creativity and positive energy to help make MyData 2018 great, again.

By volunteering you can be at the very centre of this exciting movement, make new friends and gain hands-on experience from organising a large international, multi-day conference.

Volunteers who are active in the run-up to the conference get a free conference pass!

“Talkoot” is a Finnish word for getting things done together while enjoying good company.

Talkoot are co-creation spurts. We invite volunteers to gather together with the core team to work on pre-defined topics, for example website testing, writing, and ideating side events.

Find the week’s topic on Meetup.com
