UK Sunshine week?

Taken from the Press Gazette:
"At the Society of Editors conference last year, journalist and FoI campaigner Heather Brooke, the author of the guidebook and blog Your Right to Know, advocated organising a similar event here in support of Britain’s young Freedom of Information Act and other open government laws.

Brooke says plans for a UK version of Sunshine Week, tentatively titled “Spotlight Week” are progressing slowly as Brooke and the Society of Editors hope to build support and funding from Britain’s notoriously competitive media organisations. Two national broadsheets are understood to have given early support to the project."
