28 September 2020 The International Day for Universal Access to Information as recognised by the United Nations, also known as International Access to Information Day in Australia, is celebrated today, 28 September 2020. The right to access government information is encapsulated within Article 19 of the United Nations’ Declaration of Human Rights. In NSW, we celebrate this over a week called Right to Know which focuses on citizens’ rights to access government-held information and agencies’ responsibilities under the GIPA Act. The Information and Privacy Commission celebrates Right to Know Week NSW, by engaging with public sector agencies and public citizens to raise awareness of a person’s right to government held information and encourage citizens to take an active interest in their right to access information. The 2020 theme is Right to Know: Future-proofing information access rights. Increasingly government information is held in digital form, likewise decision-making and services are increasingly automated. The community has a right to access NSW government information in all forms and the increasing digitisation of government has implications for how governments can improve outcomes for citizens seeking access to this information.
