The Creative Bureaucracy Festival 2021

13-17 september

The Creative Bureaucracy Festival celebrates outstanding innovation in the public sector and its contribution to a better, more sustainable, and more just world. It brings together bureaucrats and their allies – those who, at all levels of government, fight for the common good and make a difference.

Energy Cities - Creative Bureaucracy Festival 2021

Our mission: We want to cultivate a more positive attitude towards the public sector as well as more drive and eagerness to experiment within the public sector.

We do so in two ways: Firstly, we organize the annual Creative Bureaucracy Festival – this year in its fourth edition and, for the second time, mostly online. Secondly, we want to become the digital library for bureaucracy at its best – a platform for good ideas and creative minds, open for business year-round.
