Issue to be addressed: Concerning open government initiatives promoted by the City Hall, there are low participation levels among citizens. Primary Objective: Improving social participation by means of new communication channels between citizens and Participative Councils in order to empower these participatory structures at the Subprefectures. Short Description: By means of open deliberative sessions, it aims at bringing citizens closer to the Municipal Participative Councils and Subprefectures, so that their demands can be heard and received, and they can also engage with local participative structures. OGP Challenge: Participative Councils, as important structures of reception and discussion of popular demands, by reaching out to citizens, can strengthen social participation in decision-making local level processes. Likewise, the creation of open sessions, the production of reports and the provision of the meetings’ agenda and minute will grant better access of information to citizens.
