Collaboration and the climate emergency

No one individual, body, or country can address the climate emergency alone. Instead, solutions rely on collaboration across all sectors and at multiple scales.

Co-creation is a collaborative process that draws on a range of inputs from key stakeholders* to inform the process and ultimately design and create the ‘product’ (for example, a Council’s climate action plan or national policy). It focuses on stakeholder experience and interactive relationships and allows for more active involvement of key stakeholders. The aim is to reach a mutually valued outcome, which will, in turn, be owned by all stakeholders, thereby maximising its impact.

Co-creation blends ideas from all key stakeholders to create new ideas, exploring both the existing challenges and the potential solutions. Ultimately, co-creation results in strategies, policies, and decisions that are robust, meaningful, and fit for use, now and into the future.

In this webinar, CAT’s Innovation Lab Manager, Dr Anna Bullen, will explore this process. Anna will discuss how the Zero Carbon Britain Hub Innovation Lab uses co-creative methodologies to identify key barriers and solutions for a just transition to net zero.

*Stakeholder – a person/organisation with an interest in and/or influence on the project and outcomes. This may be anyone from a local authority or government, a variety of community sub-sectors, funders, NGOs, community representatives, etc.
