The COVID-19 pandmic has shaken our understanding of the world and how things should work. The aftershocks of it will undoubtedly ripple through all domains, whether personal, economic, social or political. While no one can say how things will unfold, it is clear that 2020 will mark a fundamental shift. But what will the changes coming out of it be? What should they be?
Coordinated by the OECD’s Observatory of Public Sector Innovation and with the support of the European Commission through its Horizon 2020 Programme, Government After Shock will be an event to suit today’s unsettled context, one built upon learning from diverse experiences and bringing them together to help identify and consider the implications for governments and those involved in public purpose work. The two parts will be:
Day 1: Rethinking and rebuilding through innovation - a series of local conversations hosted around the world, connected together by shared elements to help inform a global dialogue
Day 2: Collaboration for systemic change beyond crisis - this high level forum will bring together contributions from leaders to discuss the insights from day 1 and how governments can build upon the hard-won lessons from the crisis to make for better government into the future.
