Open Government Wales Project

The Wales Open Government Network is a coalition of active citizens and civil society organisations committed to making Welsh government work better for people through enhanced transparency, participation and accountability.

The Open Government Pioneers Project has been set up to build the capacity of citizens and civil society across the United Kingdom to contribute and input to policy-making and service delivery in progressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The project is a UK-wide partnership between Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (Lead), Northern Ireland Environment Link, Involve and WCVA. In Wales, the project is jointly led by the Electoral Reform Society, Cynnal Cymru and WCVA and focusses on the wellbeing Goals as set by the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.

We welcome groups and individuals to get involved and connect to the project.
