Recent talks on open source in government

We published our report Open source: creating the conditions for success in government in June 2021. It’s been great to see a good response online over the past few months.

Emma led a panel on open source as part of our annual convening with the Harvard Kennedy School, and more recently we’ve had a chance to talk about it with several other groups. Two of them have published the videos, so we thought we’d share.

Anna shared some of what we’ve learned with the Institute for Citizen-Centred Service, and I chipped in on the Q&A. And Emma and I spoke with Alistair Croll for an episode of the FWDThinking YouTube series that accompanies the FWD50 conference.

Emma Gawen and James Stewart spoke with Alistair Croll on FWDThinking.
