πŸ‘ Almedalsdata – Almedalsveckan's program as open data

The title is quite self-explanatory, Almedalsdata is a dataset containing all the events of the festival, right now from 2009 to 2021.

The data is here on Github, as is the source code used to fetched the data from the official program website.

I’m hoping to have more time to dive into it in the future to see if it can be of interest to analyse the weight of corporate lobbying, see how some topics have been covered over the years and identify the political career of some recurring speakers.

You can find more information about this project in this blog post: EN|SV.

As usual, the goal with this project is also to help others by making data more accessible. I’m really hoping that journalists and political scientists will be able to use it in their work. And don’t hesitate to engage in this forum and to reach out if you want to do something together! :blush::heart:
