Event description

Description

Are you a housing advocate using open data to build a diverse coalition to fight for tenants rights in NYC? Are you a community organizer analyzing public data to better reach underserved New Yorkers in the 2020 Census? Are you a program manager working to develop a new multi-stakeholder City initiative that could transform our civic tech landscape?

Co-design can help.

An increasingly popular method for meaningful stakeholder engagement, co-design goes by many labels (see: co-creation, participatory design, community consultation, the list goes on) and is defined by its potential to create smarter, more sustainable outcomes. But co-design is no silver bullet. And like many trendy solutions, the exciting promise of this approach often leads to rushed applications that fail to shift power, create buy-in, or lead to lasting impact.

Reboot’s decade of experience in collaborative design has taught us that while flashy innovations may tempt us towards catch-all solutions, co-design (just like civic tech), requires an intentional approach that meets people where they are.

In this interactive workshop, practitioners—especially those already engaging communities, consulting stakeholders, and building coalitions for open data projects—will learn how to lead a focused co-design process and get better outcomes through thoughtful collaboration. We encourage participants to come to the workshop with a specific open data or civic tech project to which they might want to apply a “design thinking” approach.

This event is part of NYC Open Data Week 2020.
