The Future of Local Government

Join the discussion

From managing shrinking budgets and increasing citizen expectations, to nurturing community engagement and achieving net zero – it’s safe to say local government is at the sharp end of many challenges.

Working with Solace, we’re setting out to discover what our future local government might look like in 2032 and how we can all prepare for this.

Through discussions with current and aspiring leaders we’re uncovering what you should be doing now, next, and later to be ready.

Working together on this innovation mission, we’ll put new ideas into action to develop the technology tools you need to succeed.
