The IPDCtalks are a global event series that aim to create world-wide discussion on how to foster open societies and inspire better laws and practices in the field of access to information. Global public and community leaders, journalists, NGOs and digital pioneers are invited to IPDCtalks to share their achievements and initiatives with an audience of local and global stakeholders.
