Over the summer, the growing International Design in Government community gathered at a few events. In autumn, there will be 2 more events in Europe. In this post, we share what members of community can expect next.

After running the first ever International Design in Government Conference in London last summer, we asked our community who would like to bring it to their country. In this post, we share where designers in government will get to gather next.
