Why the contribution is important

Attendees at the Public Service Graduate Welcome 2018 event held on 4 April 2018 were asked to work in small groups to answer the following question:

Our next National Action Plan 2018-2020

·                What areas should we focus on nationally over the next two years?

·                What areas should the Public Service focus on?

The Attendees did not, and were not asked to, record the rationale for their answers.

    Does this topic include things like teaching kids in school:

    - stealing is bad.
    - crime is bad, because of the anti-social effects.
    - that learning to stand on one's own two feet is good.
    If so, I support that.

    Civics doesn't go far enough. The issue is citizenship and its not just a set of dry "this is how it works". Its about understanding how to participate effectively and seeing the effects of their own and others participation.
