You are invited!
The Federal Government is asking citizens to say what open government means to them and this advice will then influence Australia’s third Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan 2020-22 (NAP 3). Work on NAP3 starts in February.
We think this is best done in a coordinated, informed manner and, to that end, our OGP Workshop will bring citizens together to participate in the process of gathering ideas on how local, state and national government can be more open and accountable.
Australia’s first two NAPs have been underwhelming to say the least.
In its mid-term report the OGP called on the Australian Government to, for instance, advance work related to establishing a federal anti-corruption agency and lobbying and political donation reform initiatives.
The Government has so far resisted these reforms but could revisit them in this NAP3.
So please join us for this important opportunity to participate by having your say.
The Workshop will work best with no more than 40 participants so please book early to guarantee a place.
The venue is: Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth street, Melbourne
(The Workshop is free but we would appreciate a contribution to cover costs.)
Hope to see you there.
