Right to Know Day public forum
Community expectations and FOI – are they at odds?
International Right to Know Day is celebrated every year, on 28 September, to raise awareness of the importance of open and accountable government and the community’s right to access government held information.
Join us as we celebrate Right to Know Day 2019 with a public forum. Hear from guest speakers about whether community expectations of FOI and how the FOI Act is administered are at odds, and if so, how they may be reconciled.
