Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Unless we act rapidly, public services are about to drive off a cliff. The killer combination of recession, debt, and long term macro-challenges, like ageing and climate change, mean the time to talk of tinkering efficiencies is over. We need a radical shift. Given this busted flush, how can technology help us create the far better, much cheaper state we need? In this session, Jonty Olliff-Cooper of the Progressive Conservatism Project at Demos will outline the key challenges for the public services, and suggest how will we can meet them if the only answer is progressive conservatism - doing more for less. To respond, we welcome Craig Newmark, founder of Craiglist, the revolutionary community website that some believe is a public service in its own right.
