Open government: Have your say

The government is supposed to be running public consultation on their (late) Open Government Partnership Action Plan sometime next month. Meanwhile, ECO, the Environmental and Conservation Organisations of Aotearoa New Zealand - have beaten them to it, launching their own survey on the issue. They're seeking to learn people's priorities on which of the OGP values (accountability, transparency, participation, and technology for accountability and participation) people prioritise, as well as suggestions for action plan commitments.

You can fill it out here.

The results will be provided to the government to help inform the development of the action plan, but will also help get some solid data about what we really want. And it will be an excellent club to beat the government with if they ignore us again.

The survey will be open until 26 July.
