The Forum will gather policy-makers, senior civil servants, high level experts and Civil Society Organizations’ representatives from across Europe to discuss the role of civic participation for better policy making and improved public governance systems. The debate will also be aimed at generating new political support for open government and strengthening commitment to action.
The event will include a morning and an afternoon session.
The morning session will consist of an interactive discussion to better understand how participation can effectively foster innovation, improve public services and restore trust between public institutions and citizens. There will be three thematic fish-bowl conversations to facilitate interaction among participants and help get structured proposals that can inspire political commitment in the region. The focus of the sessions will be models of civic participation at central, local and European level.
The afternoon session will be dedicated to administrations and associations that will present participation best practices at subnational level coming from the OGP subnational programs and from an ad hoc scouting exercise by Italian CSOs. The session will include two parallel events: a poster gallery with texts and multimedia material where participants will have the opportunity to follow a path across Europe and read about 20 best practices. An interactive talk with selected speakers presenting in greater detail 10 of the 20 best practices selected.
The full event will be streamed online.
Working languages will be Italian and English.
