Co-production is a way of working together, where the people who are affected by the decisions have a say in making those decisions. It values the lived experience of communities and looks to share power and responsibility in order to achieve a better outcome. Co-production has become something of a buzz word recently, but there are better (and worse) ways of ‘doing’ co-production. When it is done well, it not only achieves better results also boosts the wellbeing of those involved. At Boingboing we have been working co-productively for a number of years on a range of projects and have learnt many valuable lessons along the way. In this training we will share this learning. So whether you’re new to co-production, or are looking for a different perspective on your co-productive practice, this session is for you.
