Youth Consultation on the Open Government Partnership Plan
The SSC is leading work to support NZ’s membership of the Open Government Partnership, an international agreement by governments to improve transparency and increase civic participation.
As a member nation, New Zealand creates an action plan alongside New Zealanders every two years. Usually a Plan has around 5-15 concrete actions that once signed off, government agencies must deliver. New Zealand is monitored on progress against the Plan by an Independent Reviewer and held to account internationally by OGP.
The SSC are talking to New Zealanders about how what government can do to better engage people in the democratic process, to ensure that policy decisions and service design reflect the lived experience of those they are aimed at and to increase transparency. These ideas will be refined into an action plan though a collaborative process with the public and civil society.
This workshop is hosted by the State Services Commission (SSC) in conjunction with Commonwealth Youth NZ.
When: Tuesday 28 April 3:30pm-5:30pm
Who: 15-29 year olds around New Zealand
