Event description
This seminar will explore models allowing us to redefine 'policy custodianship' to better enact sustainable change.

About this Event

Eidos seeks to change the way Australia’s important social and economic issues are solved - with fresh ideas and different perspectives.

The intractable nature of complex policy problems means that potential solutions are too often developed, implemented and owned solely by the public sector. Policy making must respond not only to complexity and competing voices, but to the need for insightful, high-impact and appropriate solutions. 

This seminar will explore models allowing us to redefine 'policy custodianship' to better enact sustainable change.
