The Canadian Home and School Federation
In October of this year, the Government of Canada assumed the role of co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP). The OGP is a global organization that aims to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.
In its role, Canada will be hosting the OGP Global Summit in 2019. The event will bring together government and ministerial participants from 79 OGP member countries and civil society around the world, as well as 1,500 global influencers (including many youth).
We’ve designed a survey and are looking to citizens across Canada to tell us what they would like to see on the agenda. The three themes for this year’s Summit are: inclusion, participation and impact. We want to ensure these are reflected in our agenda – but to do so, we need your help! Please take a moment to provide your feedback, share this message or retweet to your networks.
The survey is open until November 30, 2018!
