The Edge of Government innovation experience will challenge visitors to think in new and often counter-intuitive ways about how to solve the most pressing public challenges of our time. The main purpose of the exhibits is to inform, trigger new thinking through an interactive experience, and most importantly inspire visitors to connect with the innovators behind the case studies showcased. To this aim, this year’s Edge of Government experience is centered around open questions that policymakers need to be able to successfully navigate to break new grounds. Throughout the immersive journey, visitors will be presented with new approaches that provide governments with answers but at the same time open up new questions. Exhibits will cover a landscape of solutions that are rapidly emerging and continuously evolving, raising the question of how governments can effectively explore and keep abreast of an increasingly wide array of tools and options. The Edge is a place of intellectual curiosity and willingness to experiment. Visitors will walk out of this immersive journey with a desire to move to action and turn the “edge” into mainstream
