New Frontiers in

Open Budgets

As we look to renew democracies globally, our mission to expand spaces for everyday citizens to have a say in how public funds are spent is critical.    

As the Summit for Democracy and Open Government Partnership Global Summit kick off to discuss the future of democracy, we will showcase change agents who are advancing new frontiers to make government spending more inclusive and accountable.  Auditors, legislators, and civil society groups and social movements are all doing their part to carve out spaces to inform decisions around public spending.

Please join us for an event, learn about our work with movements in our 360-degree virtual tour, or read one of our pieces below. Be part of the conversation @OpenBudgets using the hashtags #OpenBudgets #SummitforDemocracy and #OGPSummit.
