Open Government Partnership


Glasgow's Open Government Partnership (OGP) Local Programme membership was announced on 20 October 2020.

As a new member, Glasgow will work with local civil society organisations and other OGP members to advance the open government agenda locally and transform the way the government serves its citizens.
