Can we motivate civil society to form a collaborative approach to Canadian governance?

How will governing – public decision making – be influenced through citizens evolving new digital and place-based channels?

The January DwD will be a public workshop convened by OCADU’s Strategic Innovation Lab (sLab) as part of our ongoing SSHRC-sponsored action research conducted during 2014.

We invite participants to join us in reframing and representing the key challenges and future innovations that might influence civic participation and governing across Canadian government sectors. You will be engaging in a mix of plenary and focused small-group workshops to develop responses to emerging and future governing challenges. Using our current Gigamap (large-scale system map) as a departure point for participant contributions, you can contribute to the discourse by building on and critiquing the findings of a recent major workshop via card sort and dialogue mapping.

We are interested in discovering how the practices and expectations of governance are and will be shifting from the vantage point of citizens and other stakeholders, communities, and sectors. We aim to explore how Canada – with all of its levels of government and regional diversity – might evolve as a basis for considering how government practices ought to transform.
