Open government

Open government is about the relationship between you and your public servants. It’s about governing with people rather than at people. It’s about building trust and accountability between citizens, elected officials and municipal administration. It’s about modernizing our services with our citizens and businesses in mind. And it’s a long game. A game best played together.

Open government, open innovation
