Right to Information Day
Right to Information Day is celebrated annually across Australia and around the world on 28 September.
Queensland marks this occasion by acknowledging the contribution of the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) (RTI Act) to facilitating greater and easier access to government-held information.
This year’s theme is ‘Right to Information: Open and accountable government and the media’s role’ and will draw on the 30th anniversary of the Fitzgerald Inquiry as an opportunity to revisit the lessons learnt over the past three decades around open government including the media’s role.
