Copenhagen Co’creation: “Designing for Change 09” is an international event, initiating a knowledge-sharing network concerning co-creation set up by the Danish Design Association. The purpose is to address business issues of significant global interest through engaging in, exploring and developing new practices within co-creation and design.
what is co-creation?
Co-creation changes the game of innovation from designing FOR people to designing WITH people. Rather than being a tool or a methodology, co-creation is a mindset engaging people in the development of products and services thus creating new meaningful and profitable solutions and powerful organizations adaptable for change.
On August 29, 2009 an international network consisting of 34 of the most recognized leaders, experts and practitioners in the world concerning co-creation met for an inaugural summit. The network will meet once a year in Copenhagen to explore and discuss forward-looking ways of co-creation, based on the participants’ knowledge, experience and practice reflected in specific cases. Meet the network here.
