Hi there,

My name is Mat Mathias and I am part of the team at the Electoral Reform Society Cymru. We are currently part of the Open Government network. Basically we believe an open Government is based on three key premises which are accountability, transparency and participation and that it should work to benefit the people living within its society.

There are great things happening around the world influenced directly by open Government, there are great things happening here! So why don’t we know more about it? I am organising a small informal focus group on open government, the language it uses and some of its projects, looking to ask people how can we get more people to know about it and how to get involved.

I am only after 2-3 people. The Focus Group will take place on Friday 15 February 2019 at 10:15 am, upstairs at Espresso Lab on George Street in Cardiff Bay and at the most will take 45 minutes. If you are interested in having a place please email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
