The third and last of three public meetings held as part of this OGP consultation will take place on September 5 in Wood Quay Venue in Dublin. This is a half day event from noon to 4.30p.m. Participants will have an opportunity to join four working groups as they finalise their proposals to government for inclusion in Ireland’s first OGP Action Plan. This will be very much a practical session where Action Plan proposals generated since the first meeting in July will be fine tuned. Participants will also decide which proposals they would like to see prioritised by government. There will also be an opportunity to explore how civil society can prepare for further discussions with government in the autumn months as the draft Action Plan comes together.
Please register and indicate whether you are interested in joining any particular working group. This event is open to individuals and civil society representatives. You can view and contribute to the working documents ahead of the meeting. Register for the September 5 meeting. Please note that this meeting will not be live streamed.
