All - Please see update from OGP Steering Group member (Civil Society), Alex Stobart:
Last week a number of the civic society representatives attended a meeting.
The draft OGP Action Plan was discussed at this meeting on 4th October.Unfortunately the Minister could not attend, and Colin Cook co-Chaired the meeting with Lucy McTernan.
The Scottish Government had prepared 5 draft commitments for the OGP Action Plan. W followed an Agenda circulated by SG. This formed the start point for the meeting and the discussion.
There was a good exchange to ensure that the views of civic society, the meetings throughout the summer, and the OGP web page points were discussed, and where possible included in the Action Plan.
We did not have time to finish in the 90 mins. Civil society representatives volunteered to work with public sector attendees to progress the 5 Commitments to agreed descriptions and supporting actions.
If anyone has any views to convey to the civil society representatives, please share them on this forum, or go to the google doc below kindly prepared by Elric.
