About the NIOGN
The Northern Ireland Open Government Network is an alliance of individual citizens and representatives of voluntary/community organisations with the following vision:

To contribute to delivering more open, transparent and accountable government that empowers citizens to shape decisions that impact on their lives

The purpose of the network is to actively engage a broad and diverse group of citizens and organisations in advocating for more open government in Northern Ireland. In association with the global Open Government Partnership initiative, the Network aims to contribute to broadening participation in government; increasing transparency and the availability of, and access to, data; enhancing accountability; improving policy making; delivering better service provision and increasing confidence in government. The Network aims to work in genuine collaboration with the Northern Ireland Executive and government Departments.

The best way to get involved in the activities of the NIOGN is to sign up to this Northern Ireland forum. A blog provides regular progress updates, news and notes of meetings, and points of view from members of the NI Open Government Network, as well as relevant links and events.

Further details about the NI OGN Programme can be sourced on the Northern Ireland page of the UK Open Government Network website: http://www.opengovernment.org.uk/about/ni-ogn/.
