During July a series of eight events will be convened in all capital cities. These will each be a half-day workshop in GovCamp mode to explore public sector innovation issues as experienced in that city with the added value of contributions being captured for a national roundup forum.

Targeted attendees in each city will include all spheres of government – federal, state and local – along with thought leaders and practitioners from other spheres including business, academia and social sectors.
