Co-creating the open government action plan
As you know we are currently developing our next action plan for the next two years, and we’ve been doing lots to reach the wider public to get their input.
We worked closely with the Open Government Civil Society Network to invite the public and third sector organisations to share their ideas to support our ambitions for open and participative government and we heard from people across Scotland.
We heard some key themes strongly and consitently - read the report below and/or the short blog to find out.
The ideas we heard from people form the basis for the Scottish Government’s Action Plan on open government. The ideas in this report have been presented to Scottish Government policy teams, colleagues and partners where applicable, and we are in the process of developing actions and commitments based on these ideas. These will be discussed and developed by the Steering Group (4th Oct, 1.30-3pm, Hemma, Edinburgh - observors welcome).
The finalised plan will be signed off by the Scottish Cabinet of Ministers. The Scottish Government will then publish the finalised Action Plan, and will commit to delivering these actions over the next two years (2018-20)
