NBSPRN is hosting the New Brunswick stop (or stops!) of the 2014 Open Government Tour (follow on Twitter: #OGT14). On 2 July, Richard Pietro will start an epic journey of 20,000 kms, riding a motorcycle across Canada to start a series of city conversations about Open Government.
Richard’s cross-Canada motorcycle tour is an effort to bring attention to the Open Government & Open Data movements. During his 90-day journey, he will host events in 18 cities to invite local participants to come and talk about new ways of civic engagement, and how open government and open data can build trust between government and its citizens.
You can find out all about the Open Government Tour 2014 on Richard’s blog, as well as the special event website on MakeWebNotWar. In the countdown to Richard’s departure, and throughout his journey, Open.Gov Campus will be producing a series of interviews with Canadian leaders and practitioners of open government, as well as local city event organizers from across Canada.
OGT14 will be in Moncton, NB July 23rd. If you are interested in helping out with this event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
