Open Government Partnership UK Open Government Network

By Tim Hughes

Tim is Involve's incoming director, taking over from 21st January 2017. Tim has led campaigns and advocacy on open government; advised national, devolved and local governments, civil society organisations and multilateral institutions; and researched and written on topics including public participation, open government, democratic reform, civil society advocacy and public administration.

Over the next six months, government and civil society in the UK will develop and agree a set of specific, measurable and time bound commitments to make government more transparent, engaging and accountable. These commitments will form the UK’s new Open Government Partnership action plan.

On 13th July, the Cabinet Office and UK Open Government Civil Society Network are cohosting an event to jointly launch the process. We invite you to find out more and register via: http://www.opengovernment.org.uk/event/open-government-project-national-action-plan-development-launch/
