EuroPCom ends with a unique "Unconference" on Open Policy Making


On Thursday 16 October afternoon, following on from the EuroPCom conference, the Democratic Society is holding an unconference about open policymaking in Europe.


Making policy in an open way is a very different way of making policy. It is about including the wisdom of those outside government. The democratic sector and progressive governments and institutions are working together to break new ground in how this can, could and will be done now and in future decades. At the unconference participants can talk about their own projects or potential new ones, simply sit and listen, or connect with people working at the forefront of opening up the policy and decision making process.


More information, and link to a specific registration form for this unconference isavailable online.
