As lead co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Georgia will host the 5th OGP Global Summit in Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 17-19, 2018.  
 
Representatives from OGP's 90 bational and local participants -- heads of state and governments, ministers, public servants, members of parliament, local authorities, civil society representatives, international foundations, researchers, academia and journalists -- will gather in Tbilisi to promote their achievements and discuss the challenges in upholding the principles of open government.
 
The OGP 2018 Global Summit will focus on civic engagement, fighting against corruption, and public service delivery. The objectives of the Summit are to promote peer learning, inspire OGP reformers to raise the level of ambition, and push the open government agenda forward to address new challenges and improve the lives of citizens around the world.
 
Continuing the spirit of co-creation, the agenda for the Global Summit will be based on an open call for proposals. Members of the OGP community are invited to submit their ideas for sessions and speakers via the Summit website. We are inviting proposals on the following priority thematic tracks identified by the current co-chairs of OGP - the Government of Georgia and Mukelani Dimba: Civic Engagement, Anti-corruption, and Public Service Delivery. Other topics will also be considered for an open track. To contribute to the agenda, please submit session or speaker proposals by March 31, 2018.
