Online inventory: Innovative uses of technologies to improve accountability and transparency

Still open!

Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are often the ones that take the lead in developing innovative apps, creating online platforms, finding new ways to organize advocacy campaigns on social media and so on – all of which can improve transparency and integrity in the management of the education sector.

It is not too late to contribute to the collaborative online inventory on initiatives developed in the country where you are based, which use technologies in new ways as transformative tools for promoting transparency and integrity in the education sector. If you are working on, or know of, an initiative that could be of interest, please complete our online questionnaire.


Why should you participate? 

  • Build your data collection and analytical skills by contributing to the elaboration of an online inventory
  • Gain access to tools, ideas, and processes that can be adapted to your own work.

Who can participate?

All EOL grantees with an interest in transparency and accountability issues are welcome to attend. All learning activities in 2023 will be offered in English.
