Core Competencies // Breaking the glass ceiling for creative solutions
In 2019, Kennisland (a Dutch think and do tank for social innovation) conducted a design research for the public prosecution office. The main question was: When tackling complex social issues, how can we integrate innovative and creative initiatives and solutions in a sustainable way? This led to four key learnings and one scenario that Kennisland will share during this interactive session. In breakout groups we will explore and discuss:
1. What kind of ‘interspace’ is needed to design creative solutions?
2. What competencies are needed from civil servants and creatives to be able to facilitate and navigate creative processes and new collaborations?
3. What are implications for ownership and financing the sustainability of creative solutions?
You will be challenged to apply new insights to your own context and practice – how can you get some cracks in the glass ceiling of your organisation?

For her, one question always comes first: how can you make the people affected by problems part of the solution? And how can you subsequently use those solutions to change policy, procedures and rules such that people’s lives improve and society becomes more equal?
