Relevance: 

The Open Government Partnership is expected to play a key role in how citizen will regain trust in their governements. The "open governement" movement goes beyond this partnership, with bottom-up initiatives to empower citizens with new tools. Can the Internet be a chance for the Open Governement Movement if the very same Internet struggle to build a multistackholder governance?

Session Content: 

The session will present a state of the Open Governement Partnership and the various Open Gov initiatives worldwide (15 minutes). It will then continue as an open discussion between Caroline Corbal (head of DemocracyOS), Paula Forteza (Deputy of the French National Assembly for the Second Overseas Constituency), Emmanuel Raviart (https://ogptoolbox.org) and Amélie Banzet (in charge of the Open Gov topics for the french administration, DINSIC, Étalab.) (25 minutes)

We will reserve 30 minutes to break-out Group discussions, each of them with one of the organizers/speakers as the moderator.

We will conclude with 20 minutes of restitution, each group moderator sharing the output of the discussions.

Interventions: 

Caroline Corbal (head of DemocracyOS)
Paula Forteza (Deputy of the French National Assembly for the Second Overseas Constituency)
Amélie Banzet (in charge of the Open Gov topics for the french administration, DINSIC, Étalab.) (25 minutes)
Emmanuel Raviart (https://ogptoolbox.org)

Diversity: 

Three of the four speakers are women. We kept the number of speakers limited to let speakers from other background step in, if possible.

Online Participation: 

We will share a framapad.org link, an IRC channel and a Twitter/Mastodon hashtag. The online moderator will monitor these channel and report questions and reactions live. The framapad notes will then be used as a draft for a collaborative report of the session.

Discussion Facilitation: 

The onsite moderator will first introduce the general topic, then say a few words on each participant. She will then explain that the session is also live online and that participants to the onsite session can raise questions at any time, if this is okay with the speakers. She will then start the discussion among speakers and keep a balanced timing amont them and interactions with the onsite and online audience.
