#OneTeamGovGlobal blog collection
Collecting people’s stories about the day!
Last week we held #OneTeamGovGlobal. An event of over 700 people from 43 countries coming together to “unconference” make connections and discuss how to make public service better for citizens.
Many people have blogged about their day, and we are collecting those blogs here.
