A campaign of ”inform about barriers” will be started in year 1 of the Action Plan. In this campaign one can report about barriers, obstacles or hindrances in public administration. This will help to prioritize open citizen debate and fixing issues that are in the way of devel- oping services for instance by updating legislation, guidelines or web services. Also in year 1 of the Action Plan consultation guidelines are updated so, that engaging citizens in consulta- tion process al-ways includes a commitment to process the results. The Open Knowledge Fo- rum Finland will actively monitor and report of the creation of applications using open data and their implementation.
