This month, 29 OGP participating countries are expected to begin developing new National Action Plans (NAPs). Governments, civil society organizations, and citizens will work together to develop ambitious commitments to make public services more responsive, public policies more inclusive and participative, combat grand corruption, provide greater public accountability, and address the most pressing problems that each country faces through openness.
From March 27 to 30, OGP will carry out a series of activities as part of the first ever Global Co-Creation Week, including hosting four co-creation webinars for each region: Africa, Americas, Asia, and Europe. Our goal is to make sure that the OGP community is aware of the requirements outlined in the new OGP Participation and Co-creation Standards and that best practices and ideas are shared across the community. In doing so, we can co-create solutions to some of the most pressing issues of our time and make governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens.
This webinar will be kicked off by Shreya Basu with a dynamic presentation of the new Participation and Co-creation Standards and how they can be used to achieve greater ambition and true co-creation of OGP NAPs. Afterwards, Kety Tsanava, the National Coordinator of Open Government for Georgia, will present Georgia’s experience in co-creating their NAP, and the value of working closely with civil society to do so. Enkhtsetseg Dagva, from Open Society Forum in Mongolia, will share how civil society in Mongolia advocated for innovative reforms for Mongolia’s 2nd NAP, how civil society collaborated with one another and the government to include these commitments in the NAP, and best practices on how to prioritize amongst the various ideas that surfaced from the consultation process. Lastly, Laura Vossler from the OGP Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) will share examples of successful co-creation that the IRM has reviewed. The second half of the webinar will be reserved for general Q&A with the participants.
