The aim for forum of local communities and authorities “Let’s make local authority Local!” on 20 of November in Rakvere is to share the experience of cooperation with local authorities and communities to promote open government, and to provide inspiration for new initiatives.
The discussions will be focusing on the well-functioning solutions regarded to collective actions of local administrations and communities in Estonia and abroad, and the local authorities and the community in joint ventures. These include examples of effective information exchange, organized jointly by the provision of young people and youth, etc.
Guest speakers of the forum are spokesman of local democracy from the Nordic States, including Norway and Island.
We are expecting to see active citizens and the representatives of nonprofit organizations, local authorities as well as from the state office.
Before the forum starts, we will organize a procedure in finding an example of good cooperations where we expect Estonian nonprofit organizations and local authorities can submit examples of best cooperations that will be presented in the forum.
Forum is taking place within the framework of „Open Government Partnership in local governments’’. Project is financed by the EEA NGO Fund grants through the Open Estonia Foundation.
