Right to Know Day - 28 September 2019

Published 14th September, 2018

Saturday 28th September 2019 is International Right to Know Day.

Right to Know Day was first established in 2002, at a meeting of international access advocates in Sofia, Bulgaria, where it was proposed that the date be dedicated to the promotion of access to information worldwide.

The right of access to information is an important human right, which strengthens transparency and accountability in policy making, administrative decision making and government service delivery.

The goal of Right to Know Day is to raise global awareness of each individual’s right of access to government information and to promote open transparent governance.

Promote Right to Know Day in your workplace using our downloadable poster and Tips for FOI Officers to encourage the sharing of Government held information.
