This chapter offers an illustrative and generative example of a local social and pedagogical problem in a Global South context –students’ engagement with open data for coming up with a climate change solution– to reflect on the importance of understanding the nuance and complex nature of data literacy to transform different aspects of their social reality. This, in turn, opens up a discussion about how and why understanding the complexity of critical data literacy is the foundation of HE for Good.
