Apologies for cross-posting.

This is a final reminder for our workshop at PDC 2016, Aarhus, Denmark, 15-19 August 2016, with the title

MIGRATION OF A SHARING PLATFORM FROM COPENHAGEN TO AARHUS – a live exploration of how social innovations may travel		

Please note: Deadline for submission is extended to July 8th.

A one-day ‘Designathon’ on social innovations and how such innovations can ‘travel’ between settings. Societal challenges and technological possibilities call for new forms of participation and civic engagement. In particular, lack of resources promotes public engagement in social innovation, and highlights questions of how innovations developed in one local community can successfully ‘travel’ to other settings. 

In this full-day workshop, we take a hands-on approach in exploring how social innovations can ‘travel‘. A digital platform (EC AAL Give&Take – co-designed with stakeholders in a municipality in Copenhagen and in two neighbourhood groups in Vienna is brought to the workshop. Representatives from the city of Aarhus will participate as local stakeholders to engage with workshop participants in this one-day ‘designathon’ to explore the challenges of appropriating this social innovation to the local setting of Aarhus. 

Participants will leave with concrete experiences from an exploration of how a particular social innovation can ‘travel’; involving real stakeholders in co-design of solutions to the challenges at hand. 

Participants from all backgrounds are welcome to join this workshop. Particularly anyone with an interest in social innovation and/or community-based PD, researchers and/or professionals engaged in public service projects, citizen-involving projects, hackathon culture, and various participatory cultures. 

To participate, please submit a 1 page (max) statement (of visuals/text or other media equivalent) to PDsocialinnovationsWS (* a t *)
including information on: A) why you are interested in community oriented PD work and B) a specific example of how an idea / innovation travelled from one setting to another.
