About this webinar

Co-design - also known as participatory planning - is an approach to building active, livable, more accessible, democratic and inclusive cities and communities. Co-design is based on the belief that bringing together citizens’ knowledge with the expertise of professional architects, planners and designers leads to stronger and more durable planning outcomes.

This course aims to provide basic understanding of the importance of engaging the community and future users in the design process from the very beginning in a way of adding different perspectives towards more intelligent, resilient and inclusive projects. In addition, the course seeks to demonstrate how inclusive participation in the design of cities contributes positively to the health, safety and well-being of both habitats and citizens and how this practice is related to the SDGs. As a participant, you will leave with a clear idea of how participative planning starts off from the necessity of generating sustained alternative habitats in parallel to the democratization of the design process. You will also be able to critically reflect on opportunities and challenges arising from such a process.
