Cities around the World
The objective of this workshop is to showcase successful city level initiatives from around the world and to identify the challenges and yet unresolved problems, and focus on potential solutions for sub-national open government initiatives. In the first half of the session, we will use the speed-geeking format, while in the second half we will break down into smaller groups. We will identify solutions and initiatives from cities that had tangible impact in the past, and draw conclusions for both city officials and national level open government practitioners. Attendees will leave with a list of opportunities for next steps for local communities, and the conversation will hopefully also shape the ways in which OGP engages with subnational governments.

Taking OGP Subnational
Since its launch, the OGP has achieved a rapid expansion in its breadth - from the 8 founding countries to its 65 members today - and has had considerable success in being a catalyst for open government reforms in national level governments. The next frontier for OGP is to deepen, by increasing the involvement of sub-national tiers of government. This session will explore past, present and future innovations in applying open government and the OGP at a devolved, federal or local level. The session will begin with lightning talks from four people leading innovations on subnational open government.
