The Co-Creation Model: Working Together Towards Community Transformation

We co-create all the time. In our organizations, we co-create events, programs, policies, and more. We even co-create with our families - shared meals, parties, and working through conflict. But what does co-creation in the Community Development sector look like with actors we don’t often work alongside - government and the private sector?

Co-creation is the practice of bringing multiple stakeholders together to develop policy, programming, and practice that will impact the community in question from beginning to end. This is in contrast to top-down methods of developing policy without the community most impacted. In order to address complex challenges like poverty, we need many stakeholders, perspectives and skill-sets around the table. When the government and the private sector co-creates with CED organizations, the impact and value of policy and programs can increase and deepen.

We can get closer to ending poverty by working together. So what does the experience of atypical cooperation toward addressing poverty look like? Join participants sharing their experiences co-creating between CED organizations, government, and the private sector, and the lessons all community builders need to hear.
