Smarter spending for sustainable societies: a public procurement board game (Family Friendly session)

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

Societies are facing complex challenges and our public services (healthcare, transport, energy, housing, waste management, policing etc.) are under intense pressure. We cannot solve problems that we do not talk about, so come along to play a new board game, designed to spark conversations about public services, public spending choices, and policies for building prosperous, resilient, and globally responsible societies. The board game is played in teams of 4, but you can come as a larger or smaller group and get matched up with other people on the spot.

What’s it about?

Learn about the latest research on public procurement taking place in Cardiff University from Dr Oishee Kundu and Prof. Jane Lynch, and become more aware of your local area and its governance.

Who’s leading the event?

Oishee Kundu, Research Associate for Y Lab at Cardiff University

Jane Lynch, Professor in Procurement at Cardiff University
