Re-imagine Democracy Conference
Access social media kit

THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED. YOU CAN WATCH THE RECORDING OF THE WHOLE EVENT ON YOUTUBE HERE!
Imagine a country where decisions are honestly made, transparent and accountable, where outcomes cannot be bought or manipulated and where policy-making processes enhance democratic participation and connection.
This all–day conference organised by the Open Government Network will explore:
- Freedom of information – accountability and the public’s right to know. Would more open government have prevented RHI, SIF and NAMA?
- Democratic Ownership – Is democracy being subverted by dark money – the undisclosed funding of organisations involved in public advocacy?
- Anti-corruption – Will improving transparency around beneficial ownership help prevent tax evasion, money laundering and corruption?
- Environmental protection – As climate change threatens the very existence of life on earth, how can the UK contribute to efforts to avoid global disaster?
- Making power responsive to citizens’ hopes and needs – What’s the future for open government and democracy?
This conference is organised as part of the Imagine Belfast Festival – Check it out!
If you can’t attend in person, consider watching the livestream or recording.
