Summary


The purpose of this international course is to empower emerging and established leaders who want to improve their local government.  We are building on the momentum generated by the US Open Government Initiative to bring transparency, participation, and collaboration to all levels of government.

Participants in this course will learn how to grow the open government community in their part of the world.  Participants will be sharing knowledge, challenges, and solutions in order to hold 100+ Local Open Government Innovation Summits across the US and abroad in May 2011.

This course has evolved and now we are moving forward only if we have a critical mass of 100 organizers step forward to hold a local summit: http://local-opengov.eventbrite.com/
