Invitation to an open discussion in Cairo, Sunday, April 7th

This Sunday, April 7th in Cairo, OpenOil invites all journalists and activists working on the extractive industries in Egypt to an open discussion: “Civil Society & the Egyptian Oil & Gas industry – how can we drive Transparency in the Digital Age?”

The event will demonstrate how resources like the new wiki guide to the extractive industries of Egypt, being built right now in both English and Arabic, can improve the capacity of citizens to learn about and monitor the oil and gas industries in Egypt. This new standing resource, at egypt.wiki.openoil.net, is the twelfth of its kind. See the eleven others at wiki.openoil.net.

The event is hosted by the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights office and organised in collaboration with the Arab Digital Expression Foundation and the Egypt Independent. We welcome all interested parties to join the discussion, to help shape it and make it more useful. OpenOil associate Anton Ruehling will be there to present the guide – and we look forward to seeing you there!
