How often do you can’t reach. How many web pages you have to browse to find the correct contact information of a state institution? Wondered if you ever the fact that the official mail of the state authority ends in @mail.ru? Do you hope, when you write an email to the Agency that they will open and answer you?
These are all elements of information availability. Often, from how quickly we access information and how much it is accurate and complete independent implementation of our civil liberties, rights and opportunities.
In November last year a Law “On access to information”. On the basis of the draft City Solutions (the initiators of the project Business incubator, and MOST OF the “Foundation for socio-cultural development “TOBE”), held a Hackathon on information availability.
For 4 hours together we checked over 50 sites of state bodies and subordinate institutions on information availability. All together we have made a visual map of the availability of our city. Each participant, regardless of the technical education and skills, has contributed to this social audit.
