Open Government Places allows civil servants to cut through the red tape, join forces, and share government forward. This project is called Deelstoel in Dutch (‘share chair’) and invites civil servants to ‘hack’ the government and share their workplaces. Government offices are invited to reserve a part of their buildings to be made available to colleagues from other public administrative organizations.
Open Government Places (OGP) targets the viability of interactive Web 2.0 communications, and provides the forum and logistics to align civil servants and what they do directly with the communities they serve. As both an in-person and on-line arena within a real-time dimension, OGP streamlines our way of working and redefines how management and leadership happen. By networking and pooling experience and insights for more effective solutions, Open Government Places accesses existing resources and capitalizes on the obvious!
