Gather together about 130 citizens and 25 civil society and think tank representatives. Invite them to review the present and speculate on how government will look in the future. Review and synthesize the resulting discussions. Out comes four different scenarios:
- DIY Democracy (page 32)
- Private Algocracy (page 38)
- Super Collaborative Government (page 44)
- Over-Regulatocracy (page 50)
This was a FuturGov2030+ project sponsored by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) for the Directorate General for Communication Networks, Content and Technology (DG CNECT) to “explore emerging societal challenges, analyse trends in our rapidly changing digital society, imagine and reflect on possible futures and launch an EU-wide debate on the future role of government looking up to 2030 and beyond.” The report, using design thinking and citizen engagement, looks at how novel approaches that could lead to more citizen engagement and higher quality services, need to be tested and adopted.
