Drive Sweden Thematic Area Meet-Up: Public Engagement

Engaging people in future mobility co-design activities: principles and practices

Welcome to a meet-up arranged by Drive Sweden Thematic Area Public Engagement! This time, the meeting will focus on learnings from Drive Sweden's strategic project AHA II, multi-stakeholder collaborations, engaging local knowledge and values and how to work with co-designing and a companion toolkit from the project.

The long-term goals for the Public Engagement thematic area aim at testing, evaluating and communicating user-involving innovation methods that invite both public and private actors to collaborate on how society should integrate new mobility solutions. We also want to establish a framework of principles on how to create this engagement. During this meet-up we will focus on these goals.

During this event, we will learn more about the results from Drive Sweden’s strategic project AHA II. The project aims at demonstrating and innovating ways to involve communities of people as well as public and private stakeholders in the design of urban mobility solutions in relation to first/last mile transport. To do this, AHA II has established two design ethnographic Urban Living Labs in areas in Gothenburg (Bergum-Gunnilsebygden) and Helsingborg (Drottninghög). What this means, and what we have learnt from doing it, will be disseminated through the following program:


10.00-12.00 Re-framing workshop
In this workshop you will be guided through the different co-design activities with the companion toolkit that has been developed in AHA II. These activities form a methodology to anchor innovation processes into people’s everyday life and at the same time bring together different stakeholders into a people-centered agenda.
