Queensland's Right to Know Day theme this year is ’A right to information. Play your part.’ Yesterday Emeritus Professor Richard Mulgan played his part delivering the Annual Solomon Lecture which I'll read with interest
In NSW the Information Commissioner announced a "proactive campaign to encourage public sector agencies, universities and regional councils to champion open government and spread the message of proactive release of information to their stakeholders and communities."

Australia's efforts are not quite up there with the citizen centric celebration of Right to Know elsewhere but hey, small steps, long journey.
