The Future of Government 2030+: A Citizen Centric Perspective on New Governance Models, is a project led by Dr Lara Salinas, commissioned by the EU Policy Lab of the Joint Research Centre in collaboration with Directorate-General Communications Networks, Content and Technology.
The aim of the project is to better understand the changing relationships among citizens, businesses and governments and to envision and discuss alternative scenarios and government models with a wider group of stakeholders.
Six European design schools were invited to work on creative speculations and out of the box thinking on possible alternative models of government. United Kingdom was represented by UAL, where UAL’s Public Collaboration Lab, MA Service Design collaborated with the London Borough of Camden on seven proposals for the future of government. Each of the seven proposals is grounded on a future scenario and proposes either a future model of ‘open democracy’ or future models of service delivery that is applied to meeting Camden’s aspirations for the future.
