A global call to action to transform the way governments serve their citizens
Given the spread of the pandemic, we encourage OGP participants to follow public health instructions and guidelines in their communities and switch to virtual meetings if possible.
For one week in May, open government doers, leaders, and thinkers from around the world will come together to share ideas, discuss solutions, and commit to new levels of citizen participation in government to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s Open Gov Week theme will focus on how we reset or build again governments, institutions and societies that are transparent, accountable, participatory, and inclusive.
Open Gov Week is designed for anyone who believes citizens should play a role in shaping the policies that affect their lives.
It features seminars, hackathons, public debates, webinars, open dataset releases and other events planned by citizens, civil society and governments.
