The collaborative manifesto The Swedish declaration
• How do we establish a more e- collaborative relationship between Citizen and State in Swedish Local Government
What is the urgency?• Sweden is in a comfortable position now but it will not last. Use the time well.• How do we give the Politicians the desire to participate in this process? Engage in constructive debate - the evangelists need to become part of the solution• Create a shared information base
What are the principleswe are trying to work towards?
Open data, open practice, open Open access Crowdsourcing, co-design, co- Collaborative production Trusted Transparency, Individual as participant citizen not Nature of relationship customers Empowered actors High levels of self-efficacyResponsive to social change New kinds of leadership, powerand the networked society and culture, blurring of boundaries Change is normal BPR, constant innovation Commitment to Explore the new role of therepresentative democracy politician
Test these against current practice• Agree the terms of engagement: we have to admit failure, we have to be open with results, we have to commit to respond to results• SALAR to offer an incentive to participate
Test these against current practice?• Create a lightweight approach that can be run internally to check strategies and investments by municipalities against these principles• Use civil society to judge these
What are the outcomes?• Conversation with city councils• Internal learning• Public discussion• Identification of the innovators
What would happen next?• Decision to actively participate in the network and subscribe to the principles• Commitment from politicians, civil society and civil servants• Identification of the projects that they will provide the network• Commitment to the learning contract• Agree to share failure as well as success
Experiment and learn• Capture learning from innovation
Connect pilots to strategy process• Find these pilots in the audit• What stops pilots going mainstream?• Whats the difference a pilot and service redesign?• How do we create the energy to take the next step?• For example; PB projects have been tried but not turned into systemic change
change not the status quo• Stakeholder project that involves actors outside of the Municipality• ITS HUGE!
Next generation participation projects• How do we create open engagement projects that support the principles we have described
Next generationparticipation projects• For example: combination of fixmystreet, collaborative planning and participatory budgeting. Set a PB budget for a specific street or area. Municipality opens up their data and expertise to support collaborative decision making. Politicians involved in ensuring the process is representative. Public is responsible for agenda and priority setting
Model service delivery around life events• Use open data to expose the path of the service• Transparent the assumptions around the service• Co-design discussion with participants to redevelop• Establish co-productive solutions and more choice for the new solution
Find the bottom up projects• Search for civil society generated initiatives which could be amplified and encouraged as part of this process
Network the innovators• Create a movement -,open and fluid• Create a new norm that everyone is an innovator• Make it fun• Prizes / Citizen Oscar• Agree a systematic learning approach• Celebrate failure• Be careful of language and create shared language and narrative• Only use each example once• Ensure that there is a place for minority voices
DEFINITELY DO THIS!• Unconference - bring these people together with a shared purpose but no agenda and see what happens
Not to Forget List• Document principles• Create audit process• Ensure there are benefits to all participants
