OpenStories is the home for all open government reformers to showcase and share their stories.

What is OpenStories?

Everyone has a story. OGP’s was written by you.

We created OpenStories to be a place where the open government and democracy communities can share stories of progress and inspiration as we work together to change the way governments serve their citizens.

Since OGP’s founding in 2011, the open government community has developed and implemented thousands of reforms. Use OpenStories to share the stories about your favorite reforms and the process and people behind them.

If it’s a story related to open government or democratic values – within or outside of OGP – we want to hear about it. Make your story heard and learn from other reformers around the world.

Find more guidance for crafting your story here.
