Challenges that societies are facing during the next few decades are significant, requiring governments to effectively lead societies towards desirable outcomes.
Despite many promising innovations in different pockets of governments, the core activities of governments remain, however, unchanged.
The mission of the Global Innovation Council is to take government innovations to the core of government activities.
Today, we’re facing strong external factors that force transformation upon us, such as carbon emissions that we have inherited from our industrial societies. The crisis caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 has made the necessity for transformation visible for everyone. Governments were not ready. And still, governments were the ones that everyone turned towards in the times of crisis.
The industrial era gave us innovations of governance such as parliamentary democracy or separation of powers. They have been instrumental in guiding us through the industrial era challenges. Today, we have 10-15 years left to define which are the new innovations that enable setting up a new system of governance. The climate crisis alone is setting boundaries that cannot be exceeded.
The speed of development has never been as fast as today. Governments need to stay on track with the pace of change in the rest of the society. We need a global platform for accelerating the development of governance. A body that collects knowledge about new practices of governance, that invites governments to join and learn together, and most importantly, initiates pilots that can reshape how we think about governance.
This is our mandate. We hope to share the current best learnings and get the rest of you onboard.
Global Innovation Council – the most radical way to build the future of public governance
The Council narrates the future of public governance. We create consensus about change and accelerate collaborative learning.
The Council brings best experts in the world to turn ideas into reality. We test breakthrough practices with governments.
The Council unites governments around the world to build the governance that is needed in the post-industrial era. No one can build the future of government alone.
The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, the Danish Business Authority, the Ministry for Technological Innovation and Digitalisation of Italy, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore, the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of the United Kingdom, hereinafter individually referred to as "the Participant" and collectively as "the Participants" have reached the following understanding:
All eyes have been on governments since the outbreak of covid19. Actions taken by governments play a significant role in how societies survive the peak of the virus and how quickly they reopen. But what kind of governments will emerge as a result of the pandemic?
In the midst of Covid-19, citizens throughout the world have searched for leadership and guidance from the government. How had the fundamental change looked like inside the government?
