Description

Designing the future – A govX life event community meetup

Designing the future is the follow up event from the successful inaugural meetup held in November. Attendees were highly engaged, passionate and agreed we needed to do more together to improve how government services are designed.

This event is an invitation to people who are interested in furthering this goal. At our first event we looked at the current state of various life event journeys. At this second event we will be designing what a good future experience might look like, and deciding how we can work together as a community to help make this a reality.

The first meetup saw the creation of six life event communities.

-Becoming a carer

-Having a baby

-Putting your child into childcare

-The death of a loved one

-Finding a job

-General govX life event community

Designing the future attendees will start to identify common priorities and create a backlog of work for the life event communities to focus on in 2019.

Facilitator: Peter Bradd, Chief Executive Officer, The Beanstalk Factory

Program: This interactive session will feature an activity based program followed by a showcase of cross-jurisdictional work being championed by the Australian Digital Council (ADC). Further details to follow soon.

Why should you attend?

Be a part of a community bringing people together to explore more ways to collaborate, design and prioritise delivery efforts based on the life events of people and their experience.

The event will give you the opportunity to:

-Share the work your agency is already doing with like-minded professionals together in an informal and accessible way to address ways to overcome traditional barriers to collaboration.

-Ensure agencies at all levels of government, along with non-government groups, can participate in the discussion around the improvement of government services.

-Reinforce the need for government agencies to shift the focus of their work on the needs of our users every time.

Who should attend: This event is open to APS, State and Local Government employees. To register you must have a gov.au email address.

The story so far…

The DTA has worked with agencies to map a series of life events to understand the experience of people and the systematic impacts of policy and processes on these experiences. We have used these life events to create change but we need to do more together. The govX life event communities are a unique way to network, learn and create opportunities that make a difference. Our first event attracted more than 100 attendees from over 15 agencies, connecting and sharing stories to form the basis for our first communities and has generated six active online community groups.
