MaRS Global Leadership - Growing the Core Economy: An opportunity for co-production
Monday, July 15, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
Public services face great challenges: increasing demand, rising expectations, entrenched social problems and reduced budgets. Reform is not enough to overcome these―radical innovation is needed, and must move from the margins to the mainstream.
But what should inform this radical innovation?
Co-production is a new way of thinking about public services. It has the potential to revolutionize how we deliver health, education, policing and other services, making them more effective, efficient and sustainable.
Come learn more as Lucie Stephens, Head of Co-Production at the New Economics Foundation (UK), presents this innovative methodology.
Part of the MaRS Global Leadership Series
Lucie Stephens is the Head of Co-production in the Social Policy team at nef (the new economics foundation). Her work aims to increase the amount of co-production taking place in public services in the UK and overseas. Lucie supports people in developing their co-production practice. She documents examples and develops the theory of co-production, sharing learning and auditing existing activity. Lucie works with communities, non-profit organizations, policy-makers and those designing and delivering public services.
