1. For those residing in Europe, a good starting point to exploring and engaging with government data is the European Data Portal - a point of access to data of the EU institutions, agencies and bodies for anyone to reuse. They even have their own e-learning platform, through which you can discover what open data is and how to use it to improve public services or quality of life in your community. You can check the platform without the need to be registered, and the info is offered in several languages.

2. If you wish to deepen your knowledge on how to work with data you might like School of Data free online courses.
