Co-design is an innovative approach to developing solutions for complex problems that holds great promise for policy-making. Current practitioners are experimenting with it to engage citizens, stakeholders and officials in policy innovation. However, they face many challenges and research is only just beginning to emerge to support evidence-based practice.

This public seminar will feature two leaders in the field who will share insights from their work applying human-centred and participatory design approaches in New Zealand. They will explore how collaborative and creative approaches to problem solving grounded in human empathy can complement the analytical rigour of traditional policy processes to deliver better public outcomes.
