Dear OGP friends.
During the OGP Global Summit, a group of 5 experts on eGovernment and
oGovernment (Costa Rica, Panamá, Guatemala, Colombia y OEA) are going to
present the 150th session called "Open government on local governments in
Latin America: how to start ? This will be a lighting talk format.
For the promotion of the session we prepared a blog where we would collect
all the suggestions, opinions, comments, and ideas, on how to implement
open government in the municipalities of the region. For this we ask you to
go onto cuéntanos or tell us tag http://www.agaglocal.org/cuentanos/ and
leave us your contributions with which we will create a Decalogue to share
in the session.
And if you want to spread it you can do it with the hashtag #AGAGlocal
Also if you are more interested on what we are doing, we can find us at the
Summit through @jorgelopezbachi
Together we can make our local institutions more efficient and transparent
and involve citizens in the development of municipalities achieving a
better quality of life.
Thank you very much in advance for your contribution.
