Apolitcal Round Table – What’s working in government?

Apolitical would like to invite interested students to attend a lunch time round table to discuss what’s working in government.

Apolitical is a technology platform and the first global membership network, helping public servants and their partners find the ideas, people and partners they need to solve the hardest
challenges facing our societies.
In 2016, Apolitical shared the stories of over 800 groundbreaking government projects around the world. These were all clever and effective means of tackling our society’s most urgent problems,
among them climate change, inequality, violence and extremism. From these hundreds of examples, in different fields and dozens of countries, a small number of common themes have emerged.

The Hertie School and Apolitical Round Table will:

• HIGHLIGHT - Apolitical will highlight the trends from these stories

• ENGAGE - students will have the opportunity to engage on the findings as well as put forward other examples they know of what’s working in governments around the world

• SHARE - Ideas will be shared with Apolitical’s international network of public servants and their partners through online content and social media.

Apolitical’s platform consists of topic channels, launching in Spring 2017. Topic channels, which bring together ideas, people and evidence in an inspiring, accessible form, include innovative public private partnerships, women’s empowerment, data for good and inclusive economies.
Apolitical would like to offer several summer internships for students from the Hertie School to
help with the launch and user engagement of these channels. The Round Table will be a great opportunity for Apolitical to meet any students interested in these opportunities.

• Please bring your own lunch
