Established in 2017, the International Design in Government community brings together user-centred design practitioners from different countries. Members work across design, user research, accessibility and content design.
Within the international community (of over 900 people from 55 countries) there are user-centred design practitioners from 20 EU member states who are active contributors including: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
The International Design in Government community is a valuable resource for designers across governments and administrations with the aim to share common service patterns and best practice. It developed online via a mailing list, Slack and monthly calls. In summer 2018, the first International Design in Government conference brought together public servants from 26 countries in London. More pan-European events are planned for 2019.
