And we are on!
Welcome to the OpenGov Blog, Good ideas come from everywhere. This blog will emphasize open governance—with an OGP flavor—and hopefully become a meeting place for discussing open government challenges and achievement and sharing best practices and experiences. This blog will focus on the pillars of open government—transparency, civic participation, and accountability—with a call to action: we want to share knowledge and increase awareness of the impact of open government on citizens around the world. This blog is a meeting point for all actors and people interested in open government to exchange ideas, victories and challenges. We welcome voices from government, civil society, and the private sector that seek to highlight innovative ideas and real-world stories from the Open Government Partnership community. The change-makers you hear from and read about here are the human dimension of open government. This blog is a platform for the overall opengov community and a bridge for the distinct and important issues that collectively advance open government around the world. We want to hear about your experiences with open government in your country. We want you to drive the discussion and encourage the birth of new ideas on open government. We invite you to read our blog and participate as much as possible. We are open for business.
