Transparency, Participation and Empowerment in European Public Services

19. October 2009 – 11:47 by Francesco Molinari

On November 19th, the EU27 governments will meet in Malmo to sign a Ministerial Declaration that will define the key priorities for e-government strategy in Europe for the years to come.

Recently, a group of Web 2.0 enthusiasts has launched an open collaborative effort to build an Open Declaration on European Public Services, which calls on European governments to embrace the values of transparency, participation and empowerment and so improve public services. The European Commission and the Swedish Presidency of the EU have accepted that the Declaration be included in the official programme of the Ministerial Conference.

Now there is exactly one month ahead of us to collect 2,000 endorsements in order to convince governments to fully embrace these values.

If you share the values of the Open Declaration, please add your name using the link here.
