The key trends shaping local government in 2021 and beyond


In this exclusive webinar Council Magazine Editor, Laura Harvey, and Director of the Institute for Public Policy and Governance, Carol Mills, took a look ahead to the key trends that will shape the local government sector for 2021 and beyond.

As the world adapts to a new COVID-normal state, the role councils will play in the lives of their community members is changing too. Drawing on over 20 years experience in a range of executive roles in the public sector, Carol Mills looked at the way local governments have adapted post-pandemic, and shared her take on the changes that are here to stay.

During the webinar Council editor Laura Harvey also officially launched the new publication, and provided insights into the role this magazine will play, and the services it will provide, for the local government sector.

Here's what we covered

  • The role of local government in the post-COVID world
  • The impact of digitisation in the local government workplace and in communities
  • Embedding the benefits of remote working in an ongoing way
  • Understanding how to establish a culture of resilience
