Launch Party, BBLs, Movie Nights... and more!
Have a look at what's on the agenda over the next few weeks - including our official Launch Party (hurray!)
OpenGov Hub Launch Party
Monday, June 9th from 5.30-8pm
After many months of designing, building, and setting it all up, we’re thrilled to announce that the OpenGov Hub has successfully - and very excitedly! - moved to its new home in downtown Washington, DC. To celebrate this important milestone, join us in raising a glass at our official launch party! Representatives from the OpenGov Hub’s 28 organizations will introduce the great work they do around the world promoting more open, accountable, and participatory governance. The celebration will also feature remarks from Jim Wolfensohn, former World Bank president, as well as Peter Eigen, founder of Transparency International.
Based on the feedback we've gotten already, space at the launch event will be limited so be sure to RSVP sooner rather than later!
BBL: Local Transparency in Brazil
Wednesday, May 28th from 12.30-2pm
Learn about the transparency landscape in Brazil at both the national and local level with Renato Morgado, the coordinator of the Piracicaba Citizen Observatory. Renato will explore tools and challenges for transparency and participation in Brazil and present the activities of the Piracicaba Citizen Observatory.
Movie Night: Exposing the Invisible
Thursday, May 29th from 6-8pm
We'll be hosting a movie screening of Exposing the Invisible. This event is brought to you by GroundTruth Initiative, the Open Knowledge Foundation, and Development Seed. This is a great chance to meet some of the folks you'll be working with the following day at TCamp14 and watch a great film that is right up transparency's alley.
BBL: Managing your Good Ideas
Thursday, June 5th, 12-1pm
Good ideas are often hidden in thick reports, not shared widely, or lost in the shuffle. Jim Cashel, Chairman of Forum One Communications, will lead a Brown-Bag Lunch (BBL) discussion on "ideas management" and introduce GoodIdeas.org, a sort of "YouTube" for good ideas. Please join us for a provocative conversation.
