International Day for Universal Access to Information
The Right to Know – Building Back Better with Access to Information
The theme highlights the role of access to information laws and their implementation to build back strong institutions for the public good and sustainable development. We need to strengthen the right to information and the international cooperation in the field of implementing this human right. We all need accurate and reliable information especially as we try to understand COVID 19, how we can look after ourselves and our families, and navigate our way out of the pandemic.
On this day, we call on governments, civil society and decision-makers to meet the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development, especially the 16th Goal which calls for the promotion of “just, peaceful and inclusive societies.”
We also relaunch our updated website and we hope that we contribute to making information accessible to all.
