Event Details

Digital Governance System Mapping collage

As government practices and stakeholder expectations evolve in the digital era, what kinds of change and transformation can we anticipate, over the next fifteen years? In view of Canada’s multiple levels of government and regional diversity, how should our practices adapt?

These questions pose a critical challenge for our government institutions and society in the coming decades. In a time when information observes no boundaries and power is increasingly dispersed, authority and accountability urgently need to be reconceived by organizations and governments at all levels in Canada, and beyond.

This timely and interactive event, led by OCAD University's Strategic Innovation Lab (sLab), will bring together a diverse array of practitioners, experts and change-makers from inside and outside government to break new ground. Our purpose is twofold: to draw together diverse perspectives for more informed and effective understanding and action in this space; and to develop a working system map using real-time, dialogic and graphic facilitation processes.

Participants in this Open Space event have the opportunity to voice and explore their concerns while helping to shape the research agenda of a significant SSHRC partnership grant, and also to inform a larger conference of decision-makers, experts, and advocates in Ottawa, January 2015.

Come join 50–60 other experts to discuss the futures of governance in Canada. The gathering will revolve around a vibrant conversation to unearth and share cutting edge research and thinking from across the system, about the scope of the challenge of digital governance.

Places are limited. Register now: 

We’re keen to exchange ideas and expand our partners network.
