OGP Global Summit 2015 | Call for Proposals

by Tim Hughes

The Open Government Partnership is inviting proposals for sessions at the upcoming Global Summit in Mexico in October:

The 2015 Open Government Partnership Global Summit will be held in Mexico City on October 27, 28 and 29. Around 1,500 participants from government, civil society organizations, multilateral organizations, media, and the private sector are expected to attend. This will provide an excellent opportunity for leaders from OGP’s 65 participating countries and beyond to exchange ideas on how they are making their government more transparent, accountable, and responsive to citizens. It will also be an opportunity for experts representing different fields, sectors, and regions from around the world to talk about goals, challenges, experiences, and best practices in the implementation of open government commitments.

In keeping with the OGP’s spirit of cooperation and co-creation, and our belief that “good ideas comes from everywhere”, the agenda for the Global Summit will be based on an open call for proposals from participants. We are inviting all interested parties to submit a description of the session they would like to lead during the Summit.

The call for proposals closes on August 14.
