We believe in the potential of governments to help everyone thrive.
At CPI, we have an emerging vision to reimagine government so that it works for everyone.
Our team in Europe supports those working in and around government by acting as a learning partner. In this role, we identify and share knowledge on what is working and help partners to design public services that are more human, relational and adaptive. We support partners to experiment, and build their learning capabilities for long-lasting impact.
What we do in Europe
We work with partners across government, the public sector and civil society, to build the knowledge, skills and tools needed to bring about a transformation in public services, so that everyone thrives. Our support is focused on three things:
Reimagining relationships between government, people and planet
We research, develop and test inclusive approaches to community engagement to help strengthen relationships between government, people and the environment.
Redesigning public services
We work with partners to redesign public services, so that relationships are prioritised and people’s needs are put first.
Some of our recent work
We work broadly across policy areas, but have been exploring how to apply the approaches above in the following areas:
Who we work with
We’ve worked with public sector organisations, government, academic institutions, charities and foundations across Europe to explore how we can make government more effective and trusted to work for everyone.
CPI worked with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch) to understand effective ways to engage the public on meaningful behaviour change that can aid in achieving net-zero emissions goals. CPI was able to activate its network and deep knowledge to interpret our brief and deliver a sophisticated output that resonated with policy-makers and practitioners.
CPI has been invaluable to Frontline and has filled our skill gaps patiently and expertly through a partnership of equality where Frontline can bring its subject matter expertise and its networks, with CPI contributing expert project management, government relations abilities and policy excellence. Without CPI we would not have advanced our “Blueprint for Children's Social Care” to a live test and learn site.
We are an experienced international team of former civil servants, researchers, and communicators who are passionate about reimagining government.
