How do we build innovative solutions to turbulent societal problems – ways forwards and challenges ahead

COVID-19, persistent climate challenges and democratic crises remind us that turbulence has become the “new normal”. How does society move ahead when problems are no longer neat and predictable but appear to become increasingly emergent and unruly?

No standard solutions, predefined policy systems or emergency procedures seem to play in this new era of turbulence. There is a need for systemic capacity to adapt and innovate public policies and governance to respond to the emerging challenges in volatile contexts. How can a more collaborative system bring public and private actors together to provide swift and timely solutions to the acute and complex problems that we are facing?

In this round table panel and together with the audience, we will discuss ways forwards here in the aftermath of the pandemic, and also which challenges lie ahead when it comes to the question of creating innovative social solutions to the turbulent era the world have entered.

Participants are Tina Nabatchi (US), Geoff Mulgan (UK) and Linda Lundgaard (DK). Moderator is Tina Øllgaard.
