Spotlight on Reformers and Tools: Delivering Public Services, Impact through Open Government

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session highlights innovative projects undertaken and tools built by reformers in government and civil society to tackle some of big open government challenges their countries face. The reformers will be sharing details of their initiatives through creative storytelling formats - TED-style talks, pitches, and reverse pitches, fireside chats, and stories. This session hopes to providing inspiring entry points to spark conversations around new networks and ideas that you could consider adapting in your own jurisdictions and contexts. This particular spotlight session will showcase stories of initiatives that looked to improve access to and quality of public services across several countries including Costa Rica, France, Greece, Portugal. The session will also help raise question around releasing data on and measuring impact of these initiatives, and share a couple of efforts that have been made on this in specific sectors.
