CLab online journey Community Co-creation. Stop 2

A session dedicated to help us immerse in the Clab process methodology through guided visualization and harvesting, in order to access our contributions, our practices, our questions and ideas about PARTICIPATORY PROCESSES OF CITIZENS CO-CREATION TO PROTOTYPE SOLUTIONS TO COMPLEX ISSUES.

The second stop of our journey through the Clab Lands was dedicated to experience and explore the CitizensLab Methodology for citizens co-creation. This allowed us to develop a highly visual session in which we experimented with the steps of the CLab process design: from preparing the field, to co-creating shared prototypes and acting for social change, to collective sense-making to deepen our impact and empower our communities.

Co-creation for me is a sequence that starts from the seed that grows into a plant that also produces seeds. And even when one plant is dying, when you put many different seeds, the result will be more diverse, with plants dying and plants growing into a forest. And maybe people showing up…
But co-creation is also like being thrown up in the air or being thrown over by a wave in the sea, losing control in the ‘Sealab’...

The journey of CO-CREATION for me starts with the phase of ‘DISCOVERY’, that has a whole bundle of different pathways, it then goes to ‘TRYING OUT and growing seeds’ where all sorts of different plants are growing, to ‘HARVESTING + CELEBRATION’ to collect what has grown and enjoy it, to SETTLING WITH THE EXPERIENCE and making stock of what has emerged, to the start of a A NEW JOURNEY WITH DIFFERENT QUESTIONS, that brings you back to the beginning of the cycle of co-creation.
