What we will do to achieve our mission

Activities of the foundation

• COCREATION RESEARCH
• COCREATION PROJECTS
• COCREATION PUBLICATIONS
• CO*CREATORS*CLUB
• COLLABORATIVE ONLINE PLATFORM
• GLOBAL CITIZENS FORUM

To achieve our mission, the Cocreation Foundation will work towards a global ecology of change, building autonomous but connected structures to enable processes of cocreation. We will use the “pods & codes” organizational framework: a transparent, agile, and collaborative approach for cocreative organizations. We dedicate our activities to pods, i.e., organizational sub-groups with a clearly defined intention and role. Here we will give you an overview of our activities already under way and in planning:

COCREATION RESEARCH

Even though we have some initial hints as to how cultural techniques of cocreation can be theorized and put into practice, when it comes to the enormous global challenges such as climate change, plastics in the oceans, or ecological practices of agriculture to feed 12 billion people, our knowledge about processes of international cocreation is limited. We therefore have to start intense theoretical work as well as practical and action-oriented research on local to global cocreation practices. The Cocreation Foundation will help to lay out the fundamentals of a science of cocreation, understood as a diverse cultural technique and integral mindset rooted in participation and collaboration, process-oriented collective healing as well as in collective intelligence, creativity and solution finding in complex constellations of participateurs.

COCREATION PROJECTS

The Cocreation Foundation will support, develop and conduct projects of distributed and synchronized cocreation in diverse fields such as democracy and governance, climate change, food production, migration and integration, world trade, ecological resilience, health and poverty. It will back these projects based on their innovative approach to exploring cocreation as new design-oriented forms of governance, participation and democratic political process from local to global levels.

COCREATION PUBLICATIONS

To build a community of cocreators in all fields of life and to and commence the necessary research, it will be necessary to form a publishing body, where everyone can find the cutting edge theory, methodology, and practice examples provided by the most forward thinking and acting professionals in the field. Cocreation Publication will publish online and in print the canonical and deviant writings in the fields of democratic and political process, participatory procedural design, large group dynamics, design creativity, collective intelligence and action as well as patterns of solving problems in large groups.

CO*CREATORS*CLUB

There are pioneers of cocreation all over the world. We feel that it will be helpful to form an informal community of practice for everyone working on participatory, collaborative or cocreative projects in line with the foundation's values and goals. The Co*Creators*Club is a membership club by invitation. It aims to form a protected and familiar atmosphere for cocreators from all fields of life to engage in the exchange of ideas, experiences and projects as well as to immerge in shared processes, learning and understanding. The club will host self-organized events. Its overall aim is to support cocreators in their work and processes from local to global scales. The club is meant to function as an incubator for emerging constellations of participateurs, projects and processes.
