The Wales Open Government Pioneers Project

The Wales Open Government Pioneers 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 and WCVA and focusses on the well-being Goals as set by the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.

Cynnal Cymru provided project support for the Pioneers Project for a six month period, helping to promote the projects initiatives as well as coordinating and delivering an online webinar and network meetings.
