Open space is a workshop technique based on high level of interaction from the participants.
It works as such that a person stands at the agency's exhibition site and talks about a relevant
subject, preferably something that is linked to open data and how you work with it at your
agency. The topic should be something you are interested in talking about with your fellow
agencies. The participants of Open space walk around and listen / participate in the discussion
where they find interest and contribute to the discussion. When you are ready with that particular
topic, you proceed to the next station. The Open space presentation should not be more than
20 minutes and the presenter starts over when a new crowd has arrived. This means the presentations
will be held several times during the Open space session 14.00 -16.00. The Open space session
is open for anyone present at Hack for Sweden 2018. This includes both participants of the
hackathon and government agency representatives. Do you have a topic to talk about, email
As a participating government agency, If you have been part in the creation of challenges, you

your challenge by then it will not be included. For now, it's enough if you submit only the
initial pitch and not the entire challenge. Yous should announce which one of you to present
the challeneges on stage Friday the 13/4. This will be done as an interview with our moderator.
