MOSAIC is organising the event ‘Co-creation in EU Missions’ in Brussels on 21 and 22 November. The event will bring together European Commission representatives, policy-makers, co-creation experts, as well as cities representatives to discuss the critical role of co-creation and explore its potential in tackling complex challenges, such as the EU Missions.
Recruitment of participants plays a crucial role in the success of any innovation participatory pathway, as it sets the stage for diverse perspectives, fosters collaboration, and ensures that decisions are inclusive and representative. During the recent MOSAIC Clinic session, the representatives from Milan and Gothenburg, MOSAIC Pilots, discussed with the MOSAIC Community experiences and best practices for achieving real inclusiveness in the recruitment process. They demonstrated that successful engagement of local communities on hot challenges for the community requires tailored strategies and genuine efforts to involve diverse voices.
On Tuesday 09 May, the MOSAIC Pilots and Replicators workshop took place. The event was an excellent opportunity for Replicator cities to have discussions and insights from the Pilot cities regarding the co-creation process they are running supported by MOSAIC. The lesson learned by the Pilots provided valuable knowledge for the MOSAIC Replicators who are looking to implement similar solutions in their own cities.
The MOSAIC Clinics are a series of online gatherings aimed at addressing challenges you're facing in co-creation and multi-stakeholder engagement aspects of the Mission work you're carrying out, through sharing of experiences and mutual learning. The next Clinic will take place on Wednesday 19 April from 10:00 to 11:00 CEST. In the one-hour informal peer learning session, we will focus on Recruitment in co-creation: inclusiveness and broader audience’.
DG REGIO is offering technical support by experts from the OECD to managing authorities, intermediate bodies or beneficiaries to work in cooperation with civil society organisations to implement in an innovative way the partnership principle. Applications close on 30 April 2023.
Ensuring that access to information on air quality and health is immediate, reliable and up-to-date in order to enable citizens to adopt appropriate lifestyles and tools. This is the challenge addressed in the MOSAIC Gathering by the Giannino Bassetti Foundation with the support of the Municipality of Milan.
The Gathering is the crucial step of the MOSAIC co-creation methodology. It is the moment when all invited stakeholders come together for the first time. In Gothenburg the challenge selected for the co-creation process was related to sustainable travel and transport. How can we co-develop inclusive mobility that meets personal needs, is affordable, comfortable and reliable?
The next session, ‘MOSAIC Clinic on private sector engagement and collaborations’, will take place on Tuesday 21 February from 10:00 to 11:00 CET. In the one-hour informal peer learning session we will focus on the barriers and drivers to engage companies in co-creation activities and how to foster dialogue with the private sector.
The recent MOSAIC Clinic delved into the crucial topic of engaging companies in co-creation activities. Recognising the significance of involving all stakeholders in the climate transition journey, MOSAIC provided a space for its Community of Practice cities to share their experiences and exchange insights on breaking barriers and fostering dialogue with the private sector.
Citizen engagement plays a vital role in democratic governance, but running effective engagement activities on complex and technical topics can pose unique challenges. Recognising this, the recent MOSAIC Clinic event brought together the MOSAIC Community of Practice to discuss strategies for engaging citizens on such subjects. The event provided a safe space for cities to share their challenges and collectively explore solutions.
