WHAT WE ARE
The OpenGov Hub is a co-working community in Washington, D.C. and a network of organizations promoting transparency, accountability, and civic engagement around the world.
The 20,000 square foot Hub is the physical home of 40 organizations promoting these open government ("opengov") reforms through technology, research, media, and advocacy.
The OpenGov Hub was established in late 2012 with Global Integrity and Development Gateway as co-founders. There are two global affiliate OpenGov Hubs - the first in Kathmandu, Nepal and the other in Monrovia, Liberia.
WHAT WE DO
The OpenGov Hub’s mission is twofold:
1. to provide a physical home to opengov organizations, sharing resources and helping them be more efficient, and
2. to be the center for collaboration, learning, and innovation on opengov issues that helps members be more effective and have greater impact together.
WHY WE DO IT
As a community, we collectively work toward making governments and public policy more efficient, transparent, accountable, and participatory across the globe.
HOW WE DO IT
The OpenGov Hub regularly organizes and hosts a wide variety of public activities and events around these issues to promote collaboration and build community. We also organize activities just for members to help them innovate, learn from and with each other, develop new skills, gain new knowledge, and work together to have greater impact.
