The NS call to action
Public Governance International > The New Synthesis Initiative > The NS call to action

The ultimate test of good public governance and the overall performance of the public sector is the capacity:

  • to build a better future,
  • improve human conditions,
  • and set society on a sustainable trajectory.

PGI works with public sector leaders around the world to support their efforts to build the capacity of the public sector to generate societal results of increasing public value.

Guided by the NS Framework, the NS practitioners are encouraged to:

  • Think total system to reconcile ecological, economic and social considerations.
  • Build society’s resilience and adaptive capacity in the face of complexity, uncertainty, unpredictability, and risk.
  • Design policies and programs that encourage the active contribution of citizens as public value creators.

Reflecting on the National Public Service Week of Canada, PGI has dug deep into our archives to share the first-ever digital Annual Report to the Prime Minister on the Public Service of Canada. The Sixth Annual Report was Madame Bourgon’s final report to the Prime Minister of Canada as she was preparing to move on from her role as the first female Clerk of the Privy Council. Her final report is reflective of her esteemed tenure as Clerk, one that continuously pushed boundaries and guided the Public Service of Canada through an unprecedented period of change to prepare for the challenges of the 21st century.
