The 'Create Phase' occurred in February and March of 2020. Its aim was to ask the public for ideas that could become commitments in the third National Action Plan.
The Create Phase is the second phase of the Action Plan’s development. It followed the Discovery Phase, during which Australia’s Open Government Forum raised awareness of the Action Plan, and gathered initial ideas from the public. In short, the Phase is a structured approach to gathering ideas from the public and public servants, partly in response to the themes identified in the Discovery phase, and involved face to face and online engagement.
