OK, so there may not be an actual zombie apocalypse on the way, but at this point, would we really be that surprised if there were? With concurrent crises in public health, education, economic recovery, social cohesion and the very legitimacy of government – local government has never been under greater stress.
In response to this challenge, a diverse coalition of committed partners has come together to create an antidote for these difficult times – a beacon in the night to inspire and support the local government community – TLG Govapalooza!
This massive virtual festival will feature world-class keynote speakers (announcement coming shortly – stay tuned!), local government legends, and next-gen talent you won’t want to miss. Experiences will range from soaring inspiration to hands-on implementation tactics and tools.
A truly historic event, TLG Govapalooza will bring together thousands of elected officials, appointed leaders, department heads, local gov employees, academics, students, business executives, nonprofit partners, and committed individuals to engage in an incredible celebration of the very best in local government.
Think of it as a virtual SXSW for Local Government, and you’ll get the idea…
We don’t use the term “Movement” lightly. Thousands of local gov professionals will come together at Govapalooza, brought there by rock-star keynotes (to be announced shortly); engaging, cutting-edge presenters, and by the power of the group of folks behind the curtain.
This show is being put on by local gov professionals and supporters from around the country, and around the world. Each of the partners listed below is contributing singificant time and talent to make this historic event a success!
Effective partnerships are at the heart of what is needed in local government. Antifragile local governments recognize the community doesn’t care which specific department, entity, or partner is providing services, they just look to local government for the leadership required to get the job done.
Every local government should be able to answer these three questions: Why do we do what we do? What do we do? What does it cost to do what we do? Loaded with this information, antifragile local governments decide how their resources are invested to support desired community outcomes.
There is perhaps no greater set of threats to our long-term prosperity than those posed by climate change. From aligning to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, to driving your community to carbon neutrality, we'll explore how we can take concrete action to support a healthy environment.
Antifragile local governments build a silo-busting collaborative operating structure with a relentless focus on creativity and adaptability in their workforces. They actively recruit diverse, collaborative, multi-disciplined problem solvers, and then empower them to do exactly that.
