What is co-creation, and how can it be used to begin transforming our neighbourhoods into more vibrant, livable spaces for all people who live, move, shop, attend schools, relax in them?
From 2-30 September 2019, the European project SUNRISE offered an interactive, self-paced e-course for practitioners in city administrations, who wanted to initiate and coordinate a co-creative process in one of their neighbourhoods.
Participants had the opportunity to learn directly from SUNRISE’s experts, who walked them through the co-creation process, highlighting the tools and strategies that have been applied in the six SUNRISE Action Neighbourhoods in Bremen (DE), Budapest (HU), Jerusalem (IL), Malmö (SE), Southend-on-Sea (UK) and Thessaloniki (GR).
A series of exercises guided participants through the process of creating their own, locally specific co-creation action plan for a neighbourhood of their choice. They were also able to discuss with other e-course participants through an interactive forum under the moderation of SUNRISE experts.
The e-course was free of charge and the seven units are now available here:
- Unit 1: Getting started
- Unit 2: Introduction to co-creation
- Unit 3: Co-identification of problems and co-validation of needs
- Unit 4: Co-development and co-selection of solutions
- Unit 5: Co-implementation of solutions
- Unit 6: Co-assessment and co-evaluation
- Unit 7: Conclusion
