Devo is back but what might it look like this time around? Jonathan and Andrew read the tea leaves. And Ingrid spoke with Luke Nicholls from SGS, our partner organisation in Australia, about local government’s role tackling the devastating recent bushfires.
We introduce our new LGiU Australia service, launching soon and start the shift towards a more international outlook right here on the podcast, bringing you stories of innovative practice from across our services in Ireland, Australia, Scotland and England & Wales. Including ambitious climate targets, study visits to improve child services, our guide to speed reading and the Innovation in Politics awards in Berlin.
PS Don’t forget to take our listener survey to let us know what you think about the show and the chance to win one of our highly coveted LGiU Fortnightly mugs!
Hosted by Andrew Walker and Jonathan Carr-West. Interview by Ingrid Koehler
