The response to and recovery from COVID-19 continues, and persistent, systemic challenges laid to bare by COVID-19 remain. This high level plenary session hosted by the Chairs of OGP aims to showcase concrete ways to use open government approaches to tackle some of the biggest challenges we face – from the catastrophic health crisis brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, to the global economic recession, an accelerating climate crisis, and systemic inequalities of income, gender and race. All of these are further exacerbated by challenges to democracy witnessed globally.
OGP’s Open Renewal campaign is about thinking anew on how these challenges can be solved. Learn how governments and civil society from across OGP’s membership are using open government approaches to tackle these challenges, and how reforms on civic space, anticorruption and digital governance can help ensure we:
- Drive a transparent and accountable recovery from the pandemic
- Tackle systematic inequalities of income, gender and race
- Address threats to democracy and civic space
- Enhance public participation to reinvigorate democracy
