Register for On our Watch hackathon (29 September-1 October 2017, Brussels) to dive into the 2014-2017 EP votes data and try to make sense of it!

What is On Our Watch?
A collective initiative based on co-creation, #OnOurWatchEU project brings together European civil society organisations and offers them a platform to assess the work of the European Parliament on a wide range of issues with the aim of informing citizens and generating debate.

Why a hackathon?
Because apps and visualizations are always more impactful than raw data and lengthy papers!
Fighting poverty, Transparency, Youth participation, Gender equality… The On Our Watch website offers insights of the work of the EP on many topics, as well as analysis of certain votes. With the hackathon and with you, we would like to further scrutinize the work of the EP in a fun and creative way!
