A mix of fireside chat and lightning talks of practitioners working on public sector innovations that focusses on building citizen engagement. We will feature the unique and game-changing approaches used by practitioners when it comes to creating, strengthening, and sustaining citizen engagement around open government reforms. Participants will hear stories of successful attempts, current experiments, lessons gleaned from the bumps along the way, and results of explorations into new ways of initiating participation and renewing the involvement of citizens around open government.

The session will cover a wide range of topics such as
1. Transparency of judicial decisions, exploring if Artificial Intelligence can detect irregularities in judicial decision-making, and how civic monitoring will be critical to this.
2. Implications of blockchain technology to enhance civic rights and the internal transitions and risks that government needs to consider with the emergence of this technology
3. Creating a Participation Officers Network within government to break silos and spur innovation
4. Building and sustaining a civic tech community to influence the creation of open government reforms at multiple levels of government
5. Leveraging unconferences and ‘cafes’ to reach out to new user groups and build new public spaces for citizens to assemble
6. Tactics and metrics for generating political will where available and elicit it where absent, both from within and outside government
