Participation, imagination and connection are what creates a successful festival. The Festival of Governance is an annual opportunity for leaders from across the public, third and private sectors to meet and explore ways to create better and fairer organisations. The festival celebrates their work.

It is the mission of the Good Governance Institute to create a better, fairer world through good governance.

Our theme for the Festival of Governance 2022 - Good governance because fairer is better - is central to our mission and resonates strongly in this extraordinary year.
