In 2017, the Government Digital Service established the international design in government community. A community of international designers working in, for and with governments across the world.
The international design in government community has grown to over 1200 members from over 58 countries over the past two years. The community developed online via a mailing list, Slack and monthly calls.
In summer 2018, 220 community members from 26 countries came together in London to exchange ideas, create connections, and find opportunities for collaboration at the first International Design in Government Conference.
In 2019, there will be various international events organised by community members.
International Design in Government Day at Code for America Summit 2019 in San Francisco, USA.
International Design in Government Summer Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, hosted by the Scottish Government.
18, 19, 20 November
International Design in Government Autumn Conference in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, hosted by the Dutch Users First (Gebruiker Centraal) Community.
If you work in government and you’d like to join the community and the monthly calls, you can apply to join the Google Group.
