The CRETHINK Methodology – Co-creation Methodology – is part of a vision that opts for cross sector and interdisciplinary teamwork as a contemporary response to complex problems in the urban context. Innovation and creativity require both individual and collaborative thinking to be successful, and are the essential part of the transformative engine within the dynamics of a group in action.
Here you can find:
1. The CRETHINK methodology – structured according to the different stages of group work and dynamics of the co-creation process from how to kick-start activities and facilitate discussion, to the improvement of motivation and the solution of internal conflicts. Attention is also paid on the importance of the engagement of the community and the general public. For each stage, the document provides effective approaches, practical tools and directions that complement guidelines and principles for process facilitation of living labs contained in the Facilitation Guide.
