Open Local Government: Greater Belfast Workshop
NI Open Government Network
The Open Local Government project will see the Northern Ireland Open Government Network (NIOGN) hosting a series of virtual workshops across NI, inviting groups and individuals to identify open government issues that affect them. Ultimately, the purpose of the project is to boost the health and effectiveness of local democracy by breaking down barriers to transparency, accountability and participation. You can read more about the project here.
After the workshops are complete, NIOGN will select two campaigns identified from the workshops to support over the next year.
To prepare for the workshop, we ask you to think of at least one barrier to open local government that you or your organisation has experienced, as these will form the main discussion for the session.
With attendees spanning the voluntary sector, the general public and statutory bodies, it will be a great way to engage with local issues and connect with participants in your area.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss the workshops further, please get in touch with NIOGN by emailing [email protected] We hope you will join us to work on open government issues together.
