Spotlight on Reformers and Tools: Leveraging Data, Design, and Technology for Opening Government

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback 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, stories. This session hopes to provide inspiring entry points to spark conversations around new networks and ideas that you could consider adapting in your own jurisdictions and contexts.

This spotlight session will showcase how design, data, and technology can be leveraged for improved results in opening government. It will also explore to what extent existing tools and practices meet the needs of the open government community.
