Open Local Government: Greater Belfast Workshop

Tuesday 22 June 2021

Online

Join us at our workshop in Greater Belfast and help identify open government issues, to improve local democracy and public services.

About this event

Join NI Open Government Network for a special virtual workshop in Greater Belfast, to help us identify open government issues important to citizens in your area and ultimately improve local democracy and public services.

To prepare for the workshop, we ask you to think of at least one barrier to open local government that you or your organisation has experienced, as these will form the main discussion for the session.

With attendees spanning the voluntary sector, the general public and statutory bodies, it will be a great way to engage with local issues and connect with participants in your area.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss the workshops further, please get in touch with NIOGN by emailing lucy@opengovni.org. We hope you will join us to work on open government issues together.

This project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund’s Great Ideas Fund.

Background to the Open Local Government Project

The Open Local Government project will see the Northern Ireland Open Government Network (NIOGN) hosting a series of workshops across NI, inviting groups and individuals to identify open government issues that affect them. We will then select two campaigns identified from the workshops to support over the next year.

Ultimately, the purpose of the project is to boost the health and effectiveness of local democracy by breaking down barriers to transparency, accountability and participation. You can read more about the project here.
