The Good Governance Institute has been shaping governance across the public, private and third sectors for more than a decade. Since 2015, GGI has hosted the annual Festival of Governance, which celebrates success in the collective effort to build a better, fairer world through good governance.


The festival gives us all a chance to share lessons learned and recognise those who have made a significant contribution to improving people’s lives. It’s also an opportunity for the GGI team to get together with our clients, associates, partners and supporters to consider the big governance themes of the day.


Each year our festival revolves around a different theme, traditionally announced on Good Friday. This year’s theme – Good governance because it’s time to think again – relates to the idea of rebirth or renaissance.


It’s a theme that resonates strongly in this extraordinary year, as our friends in the NHS continue with their heroic efforts to treat COVID-19 patients, while citizens do all they can to prevent the spread of the virus. Public sector leaders seek ways to secure a better future with better outcomes for the people they are responsible to. The Festival of Governance celebrates their work.
