Edmonton Action Lab Government Workshop



 Workshop at the newly opened Action Lab with the government of Alberta in Edmonton, on my way home from RSD4. With Alex Ryan, Jess Mullan, Peter Jones, Mugendi M'Rithaa and the folks from Inward Forward. A most pleasant experience! Thanks to all the enthusiastic people from the Alberta Government. You are in front! I hope that the Norwegian government gets the chance to learn from you and the Systemic Design Group in Edmonton.
