This BarCamp Ghana, a partnership between Ghana Think Foundation and Making All Voices Count, will explore the theme of enhancing citizen engagement with open data initiatives.
Barcamps bring together people interested in mobilizing citizen engagement and government responsiveness in Ghana. They consist of an informal networking forum where attendees share ideas, discuss interests, network and learn how to add value to their lives and make impact in their communities.
The event will explore:
● The impact of open data policy in Ghana.
● Whether open data is the answer to improved and effective service delivery in Ghana.
● Barriers to citizens engaging with open data and policy documents.
● How CSOs, citizens and the private sector can use government data to improve governance.
