UNUSUAL SUSPECTS AND COLLABORATIVE CITIZENS – OUR AUTUMN PLANS

September 2014



 

 



Welcome to our September newsletter.  Attention is turning to the party conferences over the next few weeks, but those of you who took part will know that the REAL event of the season was our Unusual Suspects festival, which we curated with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Social Innovation Exchange earlier this month. 

 

A big thanks to those of you who got involved – over 35 organisations and more than 1,000 people.  Incredible.  The festival tested our conviction that collaboration in public services and innovation in society can be mutually reinforcing – driving new models of service delivery and social change in partnership with citizens.  

 

Look out in the coming months for a range of materials and resources that we are developing to catalyse our movement of change-makers and collaborators.  In the meantime, watch the #unusualsuspects Film 2014 here – many thanks to Word on The Curb for producing it.

 

THE COLLABORATE DELIVERY FRAMEWORK – COMING IN OCTOBER

 

In October we launch our collaborative delivery framework, developed in partnership with the UNDP’s Global Centre for Public Service Excellence.  This framework gives policymakers and practitioners a toolkit to frame collaborative models of service delivery – bringing international expertise to local and complex problems.   To find out more about the framework and our local diagnostic approaches, contact our partnerships manager Adelaide on Adelaide@collaboratei.com .

 

The Collaborate-UNDP framework is underpinned by our Collaborative Citizen model – which you can find on our website here.

 

GET INVOLVED IN THE HEALTH COLLABORATION LAB

 

As Victor Adebowale and I argued in Health Service Journal last month, the future of healthcare needs us to shift attention from ‘liberating’ the NHS to collaborating for better outcomes.  We are putting this ethos into practice as we develop the Health Collaboration Lab – a multi-sector programme of learning sets, thought leadership and support for practical change hosted at Collaborate.  If you would like to find out more about the programme (coming on stream in 2015), please get in touch.

 

 

SOME MORE LISTENING, READING AND….COLLABORATING

 

Collaborate is on the road and in the press this month as we make the case for collaborative citizens and their role in the delivery of future services.

 

Join us on Thursday at 1pm to hear me speak alongside Jayne Stephenson and Guy Clifton, arguing that ‘we need to talk about collaboration’.  To listen in to the live webinar or submit questions to any of the panellist as part of the live Q&A session click here.

 

We will be showcasing our work and looking for new ideas at workshops and conferences across the UK and the middle East next month.  We are excited to be hosting workshops on future public servants, international approaches to public service delivery, and better ways to understand and manage demand in localities.
