In the run-up to Gov Camp Cymru 2017 Noreen posted this blog.
We’ve been having discussions with various people around what would constitute positive outcomes for the upcoming GovCamp Cymru 2017.
Beyond useful networking and fruitful conversations, which are always good (we know this from past feedback), some thoughts emerged around how the conversations taking place at the event could/should feed into the formal socio-political agenda.
In 5 years’ time, if the topics we are bringing up at GovCamp Cymru 2017 have made it onto the formal/traditional/official agenda, then we will have achieved!
What important aspects of civic life are missing from the formal policy conversations and need to be on decision-makers’ radars?
What will be part of the public services, democracy, and local and national government landscape in 2022 – in an ideal world where these topics will have been heard and brought in to the formal agendas?
A great place to kick off some thoughts about GovCamp Cymru 2022 and reflect on those ideas and topics of conversations shared and recorded here.
I've picked out some of my favourites and looked at the progress in the intervening years.
