The main way to engage with the UK OGP Civil Society Network is through the network mailing list. When joining, please introduce yourself to the list. News of meetings will be circulated on that list and posted on this blog.
The Open Government Partnership isn’t just about governments: it’s also about engagement with citizens and civil society. As the UK takes on the co-chair role of the OGP, UK Civil Society has an important role to play to:
- Engage with the UK government in implementing the UK National Action Plan;
- Engage with the UK chairmanship of the OGP as an opportunity for the UK to provide global leadership on open government.
- Collaborate across civil society in the interests of more open and participative government;
- Engage with other civil society organisations from countries taking part in the OGP to share learning, good practices and support.
You can follow global developments in the Open Government Partnership through the main website at http://www.opengovpartnership.org/
A mailing list for sharing ideas, supporting discussions and co-ordinating activities between civil society organisations interested in the United Kingdom’s Open Government Partnership commitments and activities is accessible here.
Suggestions, announcements and guest blog posts submissions to this website are welcome. Contact Javier Ruiz (firstname.lastname@example.org) with submissions.
