The New Synthesis (NS) brings together the role of government, people and society in a co-dependent and dynamic governing system. The purpose is to invent new solutions and build a better future - together. One thousand participants have been involved in some ways in the NS Initiativein the period between 2012-2015. One thousand journeys of discovery have been unfolding since. This second NS book documents four of those journeys and signals the need for a set of important conversations to re-think public innovation, re-frame leadership in a public sector setting and discuss probing questions on economic theories and demografic principles.
