Learn about Pati at a panel discussion
Find out how you can make the most of your right to know at a panel discussion tomorrow.
The Information Commissioner's Office is hosting the event, “Just Ask, Looking Back and Looking Ahead at Our Right to Know” at Hallet Hall, Bermuda College, from 6pm to 7.30pm.
Panellists will discuss how the lack of access to information affected their work or advocacy before the Public Access to Information Act went into effect.
The discussion, which marks International Right to Know Day, will include the changes in their work since the Pati Act went into effect, including their own experience using Pati requests to help their advocacy and the impact of the Right to Know upon public life in the future.
Panellists include Jeremy Deacon of Take Back Our Park, LaKai Dill of the Ombudsman Office, Youth Parliamentarian Theo Wolffe and Lisa Reed and Kai Musson of the Human Rights Commission.
It will be facilitated by Gitanjali Gutierrez, the Information Commissioner.
