The first one it's the Open Government policy of the Obama Administration


for sure one of the most difficult issue of democracy nowadays is to divide "claims" of politicians to what is effectively done by the national administrations

of course website is just one of the tool used instead of written communications, I wonder how officies and bureaucrats are introduced to these practices 

Edoardo, do you know how design methods were used for the Open Government policy?

Nice find! Thanks :)

I share a few cases in my 2011 TEDxPennQuarter talk in Washington, DC: the video is online here

* Week long Internal intensive with design methods (and other tools) for a public service results in pitches to senior executives for pilot funding. Teams arrive at intensive with already-vetted business problem.

* City of Edmonton using codesign with legos to look at urban planning issues

* City of Vancouver using codesign with skilled visual communicators to explore transportation issues
