Niamh Webster: Update on action plan development this summer – get involved!

by Paul Bradley

Update on action plan development this summer – get involved!

A number of small events have been held to crowdsource ideas for Scotland’s second Open Government Action Plan, and we’ve got more lined up to continue this engagement. We’re trying to reach out to different networks and people across Scotland.

We are working with civil society and a number of local organisations to schedule a series of larger events for this August: everyone is welcome so please do share!

Let us know you’re coming along by registering (links below):

Final event: a bigger scale event to try to refine and distill what has been heard across Scotland to identify the key priorities for the Action Plan commitments

We recently attended Inclusion Scotland’s first ever Highland Conference. We’d be delighted to come along to existing events or conferences you’re hosting to hear about your priorities or your ideas/suggestions, so please do get in touch if you have any suggestions.

Submit your ideas for opengov

You can still have your say even if you’re unable to attend one of our events. Head over to to browse and comment on those ideas already suggested and submit your own. Whether it’s related to open data, civic engagement, access to information, budget transparency or something completely different, we need your ideas to shape Scotland’s second Open Government Action Plan. 

We look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events!
