MyData Thematic Groups are the locus of MyData Global’s activity and a driving force for MyData Global’s thought leadership.

Thematic groups are officially recognised subcommunities facilitated and sanctioned by MyData Global that are interested in a particular theme within the MyData community. They are the drivers of the MyData Global’s thought leadership and promote the general purpose of MyData Global and the MyData Vision as described in the MyData Declaration.

Please note that all members of MyData Global have the opportunity to support a Thematic Group’s activity by indicating their wish to allocate 50% of their membership fee for the sole use of ONE Thematic Group, while applying or renewing their membership. Members can change their preference in the next year!
