Tuesday 2nd August 2021

Good morning afternoon all,

How was your weekend? Have you been following the Olympics? What was your standout moment? There have been so many (the swimming has been incredible), however, I was in awe of Charlotte Worthington and her incredible 360 somersault to win the gold.

Please do keep sending me your suggestions, I will start planning and adding them to the timetable, once it is safe to do so.


Happy Monday

From Nicky:

Camden Council is inviting residents to join an independent Residents’ Panel to develop a Data Charter

What is a Data Charter?
A policy framework and set of principles to guide our approach to how we use the data we hold, now and in the future.

Camden Council recognises that data rights are human rights, and wishes to go beyond the legal requirements for our use of data to agree a set of ethical principles with our residents. The Residents’ Panel will consider feedback from the public engagement, together with insights from expert speakers on the subject of data use and data ethics to draft the Data Charter.

No experience or prior knowledge of the subject is needed. In fact, the Panel is about giving people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences the opportunity to have their say about how Camden uses the data we hold now and in the future.

If you are a Camden resident aged 16 or over, you are eligible to take part. You must be available for all 3 days of the panel and to thank participants for their commitment and contributions, we are offering £230 shopping vouchers to participants who attend all the sessions.

You can register your interest to become a panel member by completing an online questionnaire (should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete) or email us on CamdensDataCharter@camden.gov.uk
