About the session

Join Kang-Ku Lin for a discussion on how participatory design can foster open government and citizen engagement in Taiwan's public services. In this session, we'll explore the role of design thinking, co-creation, and prototyping in engaging citizens and improving service delivery. We'll draw on examples from education to geothermal development and discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of using participatory design in government settings.

Through this talk, attendees will gain insights into the power of co-creation and collaboration in service design. We'll also examine the key ingredients for building an open government that reflects the needs and aspirations of all citizens, including the importance of balancing the needs of stakeholders, including civil servants.

Successful open government initiatives require careful attention to both the "openness" and the "government" aspects, balancing transparency with effective governance. 

Participant takeaways:

  • Co-creation and collaboration are key ingredients for building an open government that reflects the needs and aspirations of all citizens.
  • Successful open government initiatives require careful attention to both the "openness" and the "government" aspects
  • Open government and participatory design can reinforce each other
