The Open Government Interim Working Group held a public workshop on Wednesday, 17 May, on how Australia's first Open Government Multistakeholder Forum should be appointed, structured and run.

Open government is the idea – simple and transformative – that governments should be transparent, accountable, and engaging.

Government decision-making should be open to scrutiny, because governments work better when that happens. And because better decisions are made when everyone can contribute, governments should invite and facilitate citizen participation, and open up their troves of useful data for public use.
