Participation Plenary

09:00 - 10:20
Canada Hall, Shaw Centre

Engaged citizen participation requires safe civic space. Governments and citizens are increasingly aware of an array of new threats to democracy, including disinformation campaigns online and digitally propelled polarization. As OGP seeks to be a positive global movement for openness and democracy, it must confront these trends and become a stronger collective coalition against these threats.
