28th September is the ‘Right to Know Day’ in 90 countries around the world. The idea was born on 28 September, 2002, on an international meeting of Freedom of Information organizations in Sofia, Bulgaria. On that day, Freedom of Information Advocates (FOIA) Network was also founded with the aim of promoting the individual right of access to information and open, transparent governance.
The ‘Right to Know Day’ itself symbolizes the global movement for promotion and also raising awarness of the right to information.
HCLU celebrates the ‘Right to Know Day’ with five access to public interest data cases on court this week.
