On the 16th of October took place the 2nd Terrassa’s Open Governemt Day – #oGovDayTerrassa. Last year’s edition was dedicated to Open Data and Transparency. This year, the focus moved toward Participation, and it started with a keynote speech from José Ignacio Criado, founder of NovaGob, on “Networks, participation and open government”.
Afterwards, I shared a discussion table on “New forms of participation: challenges and opportunities” with researchers Mila Gascó and Ismael Peña-López.
My main message was: the time for opportunities has already been missed by administrations, politicians and academics. It is now mostly challenges what lie ahead, as the innovation is being done by other actors.
This is the video of my speech:
