Hey everyone,

A message from our friends in the OGP:

Don’t forget to register and submit ideas for the OGP Summit (27-29 October
2015, Mexico City)

Dear colleagues,

Hope you are well.

I wanted to write to you personally to make sure you have all the details
on the 2015 Open Government Partnership Global Summit that will be
held in Mexico
City on October 27, 28 and 29. It might be a good opportunity to revitalize
the push for OGP in Poland! Could I ask you to share with all relevant
civil society open government actors in Poland?

This gathering of more than 1,500 practitioners will be a chance to share
learning and continue working towards securing commitments from governments
to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness
new technologies to ensure governmental decisions are guided by citizen's

The 2015 OGP Global Summit will focus on sharing the progress and
challenges of the open government agenda, and on how the principles of open
government could support the implementation of Sustainable Development
Goals of the United Nations Post-2015 Agenda. Additionally, the Summit will
explore ways in which open government improves public service provision,
responsiveness and participation mechanisms at the subnational level.
