Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate the launch of Scotland's Second Open Government Action Plan, followed by an informal workshop to discuss how this is delivered in partnership. Lunch will be provided.

The informal workshop is an opportunity to get involved, meet the people who are involved already, and talk about how we take it forward together. How can people, civil society and government work well together? How can we make it a success? We're looking for your ideas and experience to make this a partnership that works for everyone, right from the very start.
