Sunshine Week 2011 has arrived and this year FAC has partnered with the NFOIC (National Freedom of Information Coalition) to provide a mobile version of their comprehensive Sunshine Week listings.
Sunshine Week Coast to Coast, featured on FAC’s iPhone App, iOpen Gov, is a guide to the events, resources, editorials, news and special features happening nationwide.
The free app for iPhone, iPodTouch and the iPad, enhances the event listing with app tools that make it easy to get more information, view video, visit Web sites, add events to your calendars, share the listing via email and Twitter and Facebook, and access maps and driving directions to the venues.
Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants include news media, civic groups, libraries, nonprofits, schools and others interested in the public’s right to know.
Sunshine Week as a national effort is spearheaded by the American Society of News Editors. The key funder has been the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, with significant support from ASNE Foundation.
