The Power of the LGAI Unconference: Fostering Collaboration and Innovation

In the rapidly evolving landscape of technology, the way we share knowledge and foster innovation needs to be as dynamic as the field itself. This is where the concept of an Unconference shines. On the 17th of July, the LGAI Unconference will take place at the Agilisys Scale Space campus in White City, offering a unique opportunity for local government colleagues to come together, collaborate, and innovate in an environment designed to maximise interaction and creativity


What is an Unconference?

Unlike traditional conferences with predefined schedules and rigid agendas, an Unconference is an event driven by its participants. There is no set agenda; instead, the day begins with a keynote speaker, after which attendees propose and vote on the sessions they are most interested in. This approach ensures that the most relevant and engaging topics are discussed, and that every participant has a chance to shape the conversation.

The Importance of Collaboration

Collaboration lies at the heart of an Unconference. In today's interconnected world, the challenges we face are complex and multifaceted, requiring input from diverse perspectives. By bringing together professionals from various sectors of local government, the LGAI Unconference creates a platform where ideas can be freely exchanged, leading to innovative solutions that might not emerge in a more traditional setting.

Innovation Through Interaction

Innovation is often sparked by serendipitous encounters and the blending of different ideas. The Unconference format encourages these interactions by breaking down the barriers that typically separate speakers from attendees. With breakout sessions, smaller group discussions, and even one-on-one meetings, participants can engage deeply with the topics that matter most to them, gaining insights that are directly applicable to their work.
