Learn Co-Design

Are you ready to learn about and give Co-Design a Go?

Co-design is all about bringing people together to achieve change. It places people at the centre of a change process and designs ‘with’ and not ‘for’ or ‘to’ people.

Co-design supports those with lived experience, lived expertise and professional experience to learn, discuss and create solutions to improve things. Discussion alone isn’t enough. There is a process that you facilitate to achieve results that have a greater chance of take up for adoption.

Co-design is a human centred approach and we developed the following Articles to share information, resources, answer questions and offer tips and tools to support co-design work across the Southern NSW Innovation Hub and beyond. These 8 Articles are designed to challenge, teach, and motivate you to explore and use co-design in your work (and it will have relevance beyond your work environment too.) Each Article is written by the team of Jo Eady, a human centred facilitator, strategic designer with a keen interest in social change based in Victoria and Dale Stringer, innovation specialist and chief knowledge broker with Southern NSW Innovation Hub.
