Dear [invitee name],

We are pleased to invite you to be one of the keynote speakers for g0v Summit 2016, scheduled at May 14-15, 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan.  The other keynote speaker of the conference will be Felipe Heusser, co-founder and former Director of the Chile-based civic tech organization Ciudadano Inteligente.

With 1,000+ contributors through 30+ hackathons, it  is recognized as one of the largest group in the global civic tech community.  The  results are many civic-made tools for better information disclosure, citizen engagement, and online democracy.  g0v community is one of the major driving forces for official adoption of better Open Data practices in Taiwan, whose achievement is recognized by OKFN in their 2015 survey.

As the global civic tech communities continue to do exciting things to accelerate political changes, we’d like to invite you to share your thoughts and vision of the future, and to celebrate some of the small successes and stories with the attendees.  We are expecting 750 participants in 2016.
