Participate in a small 1st trial to help us show government what it could look like:
2 weeks left to provide views and comments on the 1st Irish OGP Action Plan!
Open Knowledge Ireland are piloting a more transparent and open way of providing feedback and input to the OGP Action Plan that was recently published in PDF format. (Link via per.gov.ie press release).
If you would like to participate in the pilot and help raise awareness of how online tools maybe used for public feedback loops please respond to email@example.com with your name for further instructions. Sooner the better, as always:-)
The problem with the currently suggested way of citizen input (by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) does not give citizens insights into what suggestions were made. Subsequently citizens are left unable to evaluate the Action Plan versus what citizens want/need.Read: We won’t be able to hold the government accountable to follow-up on their promise of ‘participation & co-creation’ or in other words you can participate but there is no need for the government to take into account anything that is being said.
