News Seminar Survey| How do you feel about co-design?

How do you feel about co-design? Do you use any co-design techniques when developing a project? Or is co-design something you’ve heard of but are wondering what exactly it means?

HERE+NOW are developing a co-design seminar that will answer all these questions and more! A condensed practical training session addressing the ‘what is’ and ‘how to’ of co-design, aimed at those in the architecture, design, place-making or active travel professions. We’ll be sharing some of the co-design tools we have developed over the last 2 years and applying these ‘live’ to show you what co-design is all about and how it can benefit your work.

For us, co-design is essential in every project, delivering better results. Whether it’s called co-design, user-led design or community engagement, they are all terms for how to actively include the end users of a place or project as a genuine part of the design process to deliver more robust, successful outcomes.


Doing ‘co-design’ well is a skill in itself and something we are constantly striving to improve at. We would like to share some of the lessons we have learned and tools we have developed to do this successfully within the built environment disciplines.

To do this, we will be facilitating a co-design seminar for Summer 2017. We are in the early stages of designing this seminar, and – in the spirit of co-design – would like your input, ideas and suggestions right from the beginning to ensure this is as relevant to your profession and work as possible!


Please take a few minutes to answer our short ten question survey. Please feel free also to share this email with colleagues who may be interested.




Your answers will help us to develop the seminar content, ensuring that it address the interests and questions of the people who may find it relevant and resourceful to use co-design in their everyday work. Please leave your contact details at the end of the survey if you would like to be the first to know when we release more details.


Thank you so much for your time!
