EDGI Data Rescue Events. Through the EDGI Sara Wylie assisted in organizing a nation wide network of events know as Data Rescue to archive vulnerable federal datasets. One of which was held at Northeastern University. Over 60 events were organized in total leading to the most thorough archiving of federal environmental available online to date by the Internet Archive:

Wylie, Sara. 2016-present. Co-Founder and Steering Committee member of Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI). The Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) is an international network of academics and non-profits addressing potential threats to federal environmental and energy policy, and to the scientific research infrastructure built to investigate, inform, and enforce. EDGI builds online tools, events, and research networks to proactively archive public environmental data and ensure its continued publicly availability. EDGI monitors changes to federal regulation, enforcement, research, funding, websites and general agency management at EPA, DoE, NASA, NOAA, and OSHA. EDGI also produces many report and develops a model for future democratic environmental governance.
