I hope you are well.
Here is a Google Jamboard from the first OGN Meetup:
JAMBOARD OGN Meet ONE 8th Oct 2020.pdf (364.0 KB)
It is well worth a look as the points made by attendees were excellent throughout.
There were also the first signs of how we could start to work collectively both to help each other in our respective areas and to grow our overall influence.
My own reflection was that as the conversation progressed, it became clear that there needs to be a two-pronged approach: that we work with government (civil service) to progress the open government agenda, but simultaneously become more effective at calling out when the principles of open government are flagrantly ignored. To paraphrase one attendee: we need to to work on the inside, but also make noise on the outside.
And that for both of these strands to be impactful, we must focus on specific aspects of the open government agenda.
But please read the Jamboard. And if you were not able to attend please share your thoughts below. It really was an excellent and inspiring get-together so thank you to all who made it so.
On to the next, a date has been set for Wednesday 11th at 11:30 a.m until 12:30 pm.
