Co-creation Guide: Realising Social Innovation together

On the 24-25th May, 2011, nearly 100 participants gathered in Amsterdam to discuss the advantages and pitfalls of co-creation between citizens and organisations in this new technology-mediated world. A global community including professionals from public agencies, NGOs, global firms and universities joined with technology experts, policymakers, and service users to explore these issues. This guide is a result of the outcome of the discussions.

Efforts around the world to make co-creation more meaningful and useful are fragmented. There are very few explanations available regarding effective
methods of co-creation - what works and what doesn’t? The aim of this guide is to share principles and experiences as well as questions, in order to shed light
on the real, practical strengths and opportunities that can come from working in this new way.
