2008 was the year when the well-described model for growth based on industrial thinking finally proved to be unsustainable in terms of economy, ecology and equity. We are not facing future change and challenges; we are in the midst of them – and will continue to be so for years to come. We need to approach this new reality with new tools and a new mindset – a mindset based on co-creation and design thinking.
The Danish Design Association has set out to gather in Copenhagen twenty-five international leaders, experts and practitioners to join an executive network for an inaugural summit, which will take place on August 29, 2009. The purpose of the summit is to address business issues of significant global interest through engaging in, exploring and developing new practices within co-creation and design.
The following day, On August 30, we invite further 200 leaders, experts and practitioners to join the network at a seminar where the executive network will unfold and share their knowledge and discussions from the day before through talks, on-stage-interviews, workshops and discussions with the audience.
The outcome of the two days will form the Copenhagen Co’creation Manifesto. The Manifesto is a set of business actions based on the agenda of this year’s theme, Designing for Change, and is open and free for everybody to bring home and bring into practice.
