Hope: for public problem solving

Recently, I had the great pleasure of being interviewed on a podcast called “Hope“. A group of young Indians is putting together this great series as part of the United Nation’s. 75th anniversary (#UN75) and are featuring guests far more accomplished than me so I’m doubly honored to be in such esteemed company!

In this hour long conversation, I discuss the importance of defining problems before jumping into solving them, the importance of data and critically, the public in the public problem solving process. All the good bits are based primarily on the work of my amazing colleagues and team at The Governance Lab and all the the bits you don’t like are most likely things I’ve been ranting about on this blog for eons 😂.





If you’d like to learn more about the stuff I spoke about, checkout thegovlab.org and also Professor Beth Simone Noveck’s upcoming book, “Solving Public Problems“.

I hope you’ll give it a listen and let me know what you think! Also do head over to the Hope podcast (links to all major platforms here) and show them some love on instagram here.
