International Right to Know Day - 28 September

On 28 September 2002 Freedom of Information organizations from various countries around the globe meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria, created a network of Freedom of Information Advocates (FOIA Network) and agreed to collaborate in promotion of the individual right of access to information and open, transparent governance. 

The group of FOI Advocates also proposed that 28 September be nominated as international "Right to Know Day" in order to symbolize the global movement for promotion of the right to information. The aim of having a Right to Know Day is to raise awareness of the right to information. It is a day on which freedom of information activists from around the world can use further to promote this fundamental human right and to campaign for open, democratic societies in which there is full citizen empowerment and participation in government.

On an annual ceremony Access to Information Programme (AIP) presents awards to Bulgarian citizens, media and NGOs, who have actively exercised their rights to freedom of information. The winners are selected from a large number of nominations by a committee, including renowned journalists and NGO leaders.
