On the 4th September 2016 30 members of the public met in Glasgow to discuss what they want as citizens from an Open Government.

I have written up the outcomes from that meeting and you can download the file from here­.

Please read it and comment on the Meetup group any feedback you may have. As much as possible I will amend the document to better reflect the group’s feeling. I included every comment made in the session, some are combined together, and some are worthy of their own independent discussion at some point.

Once a reasonable feedback window has passed I will judge the document finished and I think the next step will be to take it back to the Scottish Government and Common Weal for comment and a discussion about how we make ourselves heard now that we know what we are asking for. If anyone has an alternative idea please let me know. I am trying to enable and coordinate this movement, not direct it, so all suggestions welcome.
