How Not to Waste a Crisis

This article from Geoff Mulgan’s blog caught our attention. He turns his mind to the future, and especially speaks of what might happen in relation to government once the crisis is over — very much the sorts of things IPANZ thinks about.

As is always the case with Geoff — Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation at University College London — we found lots to consider, for example:

  • Radical transparency and the vital importance of the free flow of information
  • Balancing individual privacy and the need to govern data and data sharing in the public interest
  • Anticipatory governance
  • Are we systematically capturing the innovations occurring every day?
  • And, above all, the affirmation of the vital importance of public service and its ethos.
