Equalities co-production initiative
From Open Government Pioneer Project
Equality Good Relations Project[edit | edit source]
This development project was a response to the need identified by the Opengovpioneers project to do more intensive engagement and capacity building with equality interest groups. The aim is view to increase participation and influence in the Sustainable Development Goals and Open Government by people and groups who share protected characteristics . Our proposal sets out how we responded to this brief, and our open planning document provides an brief overview of the project. This project is based on the principles of co-production and civic mediation.
We are developing communications material to send out to people and groups. who may have no prior knowledge of the Sustainable Development Goals and Open Government, in partnership with The Friendly Information Company, and will link to it here by 28 November 2018.
