The Organization of American States (OAS) will launch, on Tuesday, August 26, the virtual course "Strategies for Open Government in the Americas" for 217 officials from the region, in order to enable them to implement strategies for the consolidation of more participatory, transparent and open government.

The course will last seven weeks, and although it is aimed at public officials, it is open to the general public.

Taught from the Virtual Campus of the Department for Effective Public Management of the Secretariat for Political Affairs of the OAS, the course has the support of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Latin American Centre for Development Administration (CLAD).

The above institutions agreed to promote this initiative after agreeing on the importance of promoting policies of Open Government, and given the need for public institutions of the countries of the region to understand and train their human resources in the area.

The first course includes the participation of 217 officials from all the countries of the Americas, who will work on developing a strategy for Open Government. The course will be held for the second time, with students physically attending classes, on December 1 in Chile.

For more information visit the Virtual Campus of the OAS Department for Effective Public Management.
