Housing Cooperatives have great potential to contribute to the energy transition and sustainability transition. Involving residents in the co-creation and implementation of energy projects is an important step towards democratization and a response to modern social challenges. In order to scale up co-creation practices of HCW case we want to discuss how the co-creation process in HCW was organized? What factors strengthens/undermine the participation of stakeholders in energy projects in housing cooperatives? 

This session is organised by SCALINGS partner, Wroclaw University of Economics and Business.

Contributors: Julia Rokicka (HCW, NGO), Marek Dera (VP of HCW, practitioner), Council of Housing Cooperatives in Wrocław (practitioners); Adam Zawada (VP Wrocław, policymaker), Bożena Ryszawska, Magdalena Rozwadowska, Piotr Szymański (UEW, academic)

This session is part of SCALINGS Online Series, Innovating together: Responsible scaling of co-creation.

Scaling of innovations is seen as an inescapable answer to the growing urgency to tackle grand societal challenges. Co-creation is an increasingly key method for the involvement of a variety of actors to realize the inevitable scaling. Not all co-creation methods, however, spread equally and work to the same success in different contexts.

This online workshop series will explore and analyze the apparent paradox between, the (cultural, political, social) local situatedness of co-creation practices; and the (perceived) need for generalizing, transferring, or ‘scaling up’ co-creation practices to different socio-cultural settings.

The online workshop series is part of the H2020 project and will bring together practitioners, policy-makers and academics in the fields of Urban Energy, Robotics and Autonomous Driving.
