In November 2009, as every two years, the EU Ministerial declaration on e-government will be published at the Malmo conference. This is an important and welcome action; however, we feel current e-government policies have much to learn from bottom-up innovation happening on the web. We believe that public debate and collective intelligence can make a positive contribution to improve public policy in this field. We aim therefore to build a bottom-up open declaration alongside the official, ministerial declaration.
How to do that? We are now opening the collective brainstorming. We will collect and discuss the top recommendations to governments on how to best use the Internet in public services. Post your recommendation here.
In July/August we will consolidate a first version of the declaration, which will then be openly reviewed and commented in September and October.
Finally we will collect public endorsement, in order to present it at the Ministerial Conference.
