We are excited to be in Tbilisi, Georgia, this week for the OGP Global Summit! The venue looks awesome, the agenda looks great, and we’re looking forward to connecting with colleagues from around the world. These are challenging times for open government; our hope is that by learning from others, by asking tough questions, and by making constructive suggestions, we can help to ensure that the open government agenda really delivers on its potential.
Alan Hudson (@alanhudson1), Michael Moses (@mj_moses17), and Nada Zohdy (@nadazohdy) from our team are all in attendance so drop us a line! We’d love to to hear what you’re up to, to chat about our work on anti-corruption, following the money, open contracting, and multi-stakeholder governance initiatives, and to explore whether and how we might support your efforts.
Our schedule of sessions we are involved is below. We’d love to see you at some of them, or to find time to chat in between things (see full schedule here).
