The Co-Creating Welfare project has developed new curricula, education methods and training courses for professionals in the welfare sector.
“Co-creation involves a transdisciplinary team which has to include end users and professionals who have a “formal responsibility” in the process. It is based on shared understanding of a situation, creation of a shared language, dialog, combination and mutualization of skills and interdependence and involves shared negotiation of goals. The underlying objective of the process is to initiate a process of change leading to a new prosperity”.
1) Co-creation is innovative and aims to create new prosperity in a local context.
2) Co-creation creates new qualities through combinations of different resources and skills.
3) Co-creation is a dialogue-based process, where the different actors define the challenge and the solution together.
4) Co-creation propagates initiative and the right for all to participate.
5) Co-creation creates an understanding of interdependence.
6) Co-creation requires openness and willingness to take risks.
