Involving Youth in Government Decision-making

You have been invited to the webinar “Involving Youth in Government Decision-making”.
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST (GMT-05)

Openness is more than the mere act of publishing data and information. It also means being more open to different cultures and people, to a diversity of views, and to new ways of thinking. As Government Chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Steering Committee, the Government of Canada has organized a webinar series on the topic of inclusive open government. The webinar series will profile engagement best practices that could be applied to OGP processes as well as specific initiatives that are increasing the involvement of diverse groups in government decision-making. Different communities of interest have different needs with respect to engagement and consultation processes. This session will showcase models for empowering youth to participate in a meaningful way in the development of government programs, policies and services.
