Opening up government process for sustainable development goals

Sector bodies across the UK have worked together to create the Open Government Pioneers Project, aiming at strengthening civil society’s influence on opening up the devolved governments and pushing progress towards sustainable development goals.

The project is led by Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, Northern Ireland Environment Link, Wales Council for Voluntary Action and Involve UK, a public participation charity. It is linked to the International Open Government Partnership, where governments and civil society of 70 countries are working together to make their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens.
