The Future of Local Government

Get involved

From managing shrinking budgets and increasing citizen expectations to nurturing community engagement and achieving net zero, 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 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 implement new ideas to develop the technology tools you need to succeed.

The Megatrends

In a series of workshops, we're delving into six emerging megatrends identified in our initial sessions with current and aspiring leaders:

1. Changing workforce

2. Emerging innovations & technologies

3. Participation & community

4. Data journey & personalisation

5. Placemaking (Coming soon)

6. Changing expectations & population (Coming soon)

Here's what we've discovered so far...

Join the journey

Together with Solace, we’re talking to current and aspiring leaders about their 10-year vision and challenges they’ll face. We’re exploring the emerging megatrends to identify what councils need to do now to be future-ready.
