Civil society Scotland Wiki:About
This site is an offshoot of the The Open Government Pioneers Project, a Big Lottery Uk funded initiative in 2017-2019 to build the capacity of citizens and civil society across the United Kingdom to use open government methods to secure progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
How this site works? We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to shape the decisions that affect their future. We want to see people have more of a say in the issues that matter to them. We want to see that nobody gets left behind. We believe civil society is an important channel to make this happen. What the project will do? We are mobilising a network of people and organisations and supporting them to open up the process through which they work towards the Scottish National Outcomes and Sustainable Development Goals. How to get involved? This site is a shared and open planning space for civil society in Scotland. Use this space to collaborate with SCVO and others openly in policy development. You can immediately start working on developing this wiki, whenever you want (no wiki experience required). No need to register or sign in, unless you want your ideas to be attributed to you (see who’s been contributing). We want you to directly shape these plans by adding your ideas and content to this Wiki. It will directly inform SCVO's policy work.
