This Thursday, Synthesis, the RSA and partners will be holding a day of discussions to explore how network and complex systems approaches can be drawn upon to improve public policymaking in the UK.
The aim of the policy sessions will be to open up a debate that for many people has so far appeared inaccessible. Drawing upon practical examples, we will be looking at how these emergent theories can be applied in practice to address a diverse set of social, economic and environmental challenges. Areas to be discussed include community development, security, technology and planning & infrastructure. Our aim will be to stoke a more constructive debate in this area and to provide policymakers, civil servants, public officials and other attendees with a much better sense of how they can use these insights within their own fields.
Our speakers include Professor Paul Ormerod, Professor Steve Bishop, Suzy Moat, Bridget Rosewell, Professor Jamie MacIntosh, Lord Julian Hunt and Steve Broome. You can view the full agenda here.
There are a limited number of places remaining for this event. If you would like to sign up for any of the free daytime policy sessions, please visit our eventbrite page asap. Tickets are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
