OGP Global Summit: Contribute to the Agenda
Representatives from more than seventy countries are expected to attend the Summit, including heads of state, cabinet ministers, public officials, civil society representatives, members of parliament, local authorities, international organizations, researchers, and journalists.
The Summit will be an opportunity for practitioners and experts working on different issues all around the world to come together and talk about goals, challenges, and best practices in the design and implementation of open government reforms. It will be a place to inspire peers, push the open government agenda forward, and find ways to address new challenges. Working together as reformers we can not just open government but actually 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. The criteria for the call for proposals is available here.
The last day to submit proposals is March 31, 2018. After the deadline, an editorial committee, which includes government and civil society representation, as well as the OGP Support Unit, will shape the agenda that will be presented to the community by mid-May.
