Host a Viewing Party in your hometown

We are inviting government and civil society organisations to host viewing parties to engage people in the OGP Global Summit in your hometowns!

Participants from the 79 OGP member countries and 20 local governments will be attending; however, many interested people will not be able to participate in the Summit in-person. We want to encourage people from Canada and around the world to take part and help create action plans to strengthen democracy through increased government transparency and accountability.

What do I need to host a viewing party?

  • A strong, reliable internet connection
  • Appropriate audio-visual equipment (i.e. Computer or laptop, projector or large screen, speakers, etc.)
  • A space to host in-person participants. Viewing parties must be open to the public and cannot be held in a private residence.
  • Promotional materials – We will provide you with a toolkit that will have template emails and social media content that will help you promote your viewing party.

We would like to have as many people participating in their hometowns as possible. Host your own viewing party and register your event using this form. We would like to promote all viewing parties so that interested people can join you in the conversation!
