OneTeamGov Scotland

“We will be optimistic and positive in our approach to our work. We will believe that things can change, and we will take our part in making that happen.”

The first OneTeamGov Scotland took place on the 23rd November 2017 in Edinburgh.

A group of cross-sector professionals in Scotland organised a #OneTeamGovScot event to expand the network. We believe #OneTeamGov can unite networks of people, support us to share skills and learn lessons from each others’ roles and area of expertise.

At all levels, government organisations and departments are in a period of change: devolutions of decision making and involvement are impacting the ways central and local governments have relationships with each other and with citizens. Getting involved in the #OneTeamGovScot community is an opportunity to foster closer working relationships between different job functions across the public, third and private sectors for collaborations and reform; to aid closer working between departments, agencies, public bodies, third sector and members of the public.


After our first event in November 2017, we’re growing the network in 2018. First stop: Firestarter Festival, where we hosted a mini unconference. We are now setting up a series of breakfast meet ups and themed conversation café events with our friends at the Fire Starter Festival. Watch this space for news and head over to the events page to see what is planned.
