In partnership with

New Local partnered with Bridges Outcomes Partnerships for an Innovation Exchange on community deliberation. In this peer-learning session participants shared their experiences, ideas and reflections centred around three main challenges:

  • building trust with communities;
  • creating an organisational culture that values and enables community deliberation; and
  • ensuring that councils are engaging with and hearing from all their communities.

The Innovation Series

Innovation Exchanges give participants from our member councils a space to step away from day-to-day activities and engage with peers from across the country. Each session addresses a big challenge or opportunity facing councils and their communities. Sessions are peer-led and practically-focused, so participants come away insights, ideas and learning to share with their teams.

Innovation Insights series are write-ups of the core points from Innovation Exchanges. These short papers distil the challenges as well as the solutions, approaches and ideas that participants shared in the session.
Innovation In–depths series are case study-rich briefings which share practical learnings from council-led innovation. These briefings feature original examples of how councils have pioneered new approaches, with lessons learned distilled from interviews with individuals involved. The aim of the series, closely linked to our Innovation Exchanges, is to share insights about how to drive through change within the financial and organisational context of local government.
