International Day For Universal Access To Information : 28 September

The right to know
Building back better with access to information
The International Day for Universal Access to Information 2021 highlights the importance of expanding access to information laws, and their implementation worldwide to build back strong institutions for sustainable development and to uphold the vision of information as a public good, as well as to strengthen international cooperation in the field of implementing the right to information as a fundamental right. Furthermore, the global discussions on “building back better” remain context adaptive to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main objective of the Day is to accelerate sustainable solutions aimed at reaching the Sustainable Development Goals by mobilizing governments, civil society and people to take ownership and contribute to SDG 16 (Just, Peaceful and Inclusive Societies), as measured by public access to information, particularly in regards to building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

Two-day Global Commemorative
e-Conference
28 & 29 September 2021
Six discussion panels will be held during a two-day period in recognition that well-crafted Access to Information legislation and its rigorous implementation promotes sustainable development as well as democracy and human rights. The panels target policy makers to promote the mobilization of resources to implement laws through independent, transparent and accountable institutions, established to support and expand public good. They also target professional organizations and civil society to advocate for the existence of and implementation of access to information laws.

Access to information
Informed citizens can make informed decisions, for instance, when going to the polls. Only when citizens know how they are governed, can they hold their governments accountable for their decisions and actions. Information is power. Therefore, universal access to information is a cornerstone of healthy and inclusive knowledge societies.

Universal access to information means that everyone has the right to seek, receive and impart information. This right is an integral part of the right to freedom of expression. The media plays a crucial role in informing the public about issues of interest, but it relies on the ability to seek and receive information, too. Hence, the right to universal access to information is also bound up with the right to freedom of the press.

Background
On 17 November 2015, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared 28 September as International Day for Universal Access to Information. Considering that several civil society organizations and government bodies in the world have adopted and currently celebrate this observance, the UN General Assembly also adopted 28 September 2019 as the International Day for Universal Access to Information.

UNESCO and its intergovernmental programs - the International Programme for Development of Communication and the Information for All Programme - provide a platform and frame for all the stakeholders to participate in international discussions on policy and guidelines in the area of access to information. Both programs also enable positive environment for ATI to flourish through the development of projects aimed to strengthen open science, multilingualism, ICTs for disabled and marginalized, and media and information literacy.

You can have your banner on top of this page where we have shared Wally Olin's sample banner type
The banner will be linked to your Corporate or Product or Service or NGO or Funding agency or Media or Philanthropic organisation.
No banners to political parties, politicians, erotic or porno websites, websites of naxalites, terrorists, activists, anti government as well as good sites which collect money for NGOs

Fees : Depends on whether it is Fortune 500 company or Forbes 2000 company or ...

Anyone not competing with their products can share their banner above them. e.g. No bank can share their banner above any Bank or no company which makes cars can share their banner above a company which has cars which they manufacture or sell.

Of the banner fees , Rs 3650/ - or USD 50/- will be used as Birthday philanthropist where we can share the name of the organisation with its link of the day of their registration (as their birth date) or to any individual with her or his birthdate. Our idea is to donate at least Rs 13433000/- to Thane because founder Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat's father (Bhau) did a Gift Deed of his house in Thane and gave it to founder and the government cost of property was Rs 13433000/- Founder does have that much money because his idea was to help others without money. But in the "court case" of his accident, result was given on the hasis of how much salary he has lost and founder hardly took money as salary. So now he is promoting good salary to NGO Leaders and Social Workers and term insurance because if the social worker expires on her or his life then they dont save money and the family faces issues of money. So after his almost fatal accident, he took term insurance and he is keen that philanthropist at least do term insurance for the NGO people they help.
