10 YEARS OF OGP Communications Toolkit

Everyone has a story. Together we have a mission.

This toolkit is also available in Spanish and French.

September 20th, 2021 marks OGP’s 10th anniversary. Ten years ago reformers, including government ministers, mayors, parliamentarians, justices, journalists, and activists, launched the Open Government Partnership (OGP) – a simple yet distinct way to join forces to create transparent, participatory, inclusive, and accountable solutions.

Today 78 countries and 76 local communities are working together with civil society organizations to change the way that government serves its citizens. Over the past ten years we’ve co-created over 4,500 reforms building more resilient democracies, fighting against corruption, including marginalized communities and enhancing citizen participation.

This global collaboration of diverse reformers and the strong connections forged between them makes the OGP community unique. A community that even in these most challenging of times of eroding civic space, devolving trust, a global pandemic that has cost lives and livelihoods and the rise of authoritarian and populist politics, has always been at work.

At the upcoming OGP Global Summit in Seoul and online, we will look back at the stories of open government champions and the reforms from the community. We will share our story, and we hope you’ll join us in sharing yours.

By learning from the past, together we can meet the unprecedented threats of today. Most importantly, through our collaborative work we will reinvigorate a coalition that harnesses the optimism and energy that first launched OGP in the pursuit of the most pressing mission – a democracy renewed by and for all.

Explore this toolkit for key messages, activities, and events centered around the celebration of OGP’s 10th anniversary and aspirations for the next decade of open government.

KEY MESSAGES

The 10-year anniversary of OGP will unfold over the next months with a series of activities, resources and events which will start on the day we were launched on September 20 and culminate at the OGP Global Summit hosted by the Republic of Korea from December 15-17 2021.

As we mark our 10th anniversary, we know that everyone in our community has a story to tell. Ours was written by you. That’s why we’re launching OpenStories, a hub for reformers across the Partnership to share their open gov success stories and challenges and get inspired by their peers around the world.

This milestone anniversary is more than a reflection of the open government reforms achieved in the last decade and the champions behind them. In the next few months, we’re looking forward to engaging with the community to discuss priorities, solutions and shape the next 10 years of open government.
