In UNaLab project a wide range of co-creation tools and methods have been used across the different urban demonstration areas to explore, design, implement and evaluate the nature-based solutions (NBS) that are helping the UNaLab cities tackle their specific climate and water-related challenges. Do you want to contribute to the toolkit? Add your tools in this form.

What is it?

The UNaLab Toolkit collects all of the instruments used throughout the UNaLab project in a user-friendly and widely applicable format. The tools are used for the co-creation and experimentation of innovative solutions in a real-life urban environment together with the engagement of citizens and all relevant stakeholder groups in a city. It includes a suite of co-creation tools for Need Finding, Ideation, Strategy planning, Experimentation and Feedback gathering. The tools come in a wide range of formats from games, workshops to templates.

Who can use it?

The Toolkit was designed to individuals and organisations interested in co-creating innovative solutions together with citizens and other relevant stakeholders.

Why should you use it?

The toolkit can be used as a source of inspiration and to prepare a co-creative session with various stakeholders.

Co-creation is the act of working together. It means that a final product, whatever it may be, is created by multiple people from different backgrounds who are involved in its development. To ensure a truly collaborative and “co-creative” approach, you should equip yourself with various methods and tools found in this toolkit.
