Gladstone Regional Council is an Official Partner of International Access to Information Day. This year’s theme is 'Building trust through transparency'.
Our Council supports a culture of openness, transparency and accountability and we are committed to improving access to information consistent with the Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act).
This year’s theme for International Access to Information Day, 'Building trust through transparency', is about government agencies building trust with the community and being open, accountable & transparent.
International Access to Information Day is designed to raise awareness of every individual's right of access to government-held information; and the public sector’s responsibility to release information, if it is in the public interest to do so. It is a day on which citizens and governments from around the world can support this fundamental human right and promote open, democratic societies in which there is full citizen empowerment and participation in government.
