Coboi is a public social innovation lab based in Sant Boi de Llobregat (Barcelona), a peripheral and cultural territory that has become a resilient place where important productive and social changes have been taking place in the last two decades. The contribution to the common good and the exercise of an economy thought, with and for the people is the central axis of Coboi’s action.
Coboi works as a platform where the Public Sector, Businesses, Academia and Citizenship work together to co-create and co-innovate solutions for the current and future specific challenges and drive structural social change far beyond the scope of what anyone could do by its own.
As social designer my contribution and role in Coboi is:
- Ideation, prototype, and creation of methodologies through a Toolkit capable to give support to social change.
- Knowledge systematization.
- Enhancing a co-creation environment.
- Design of dynamics where information is researched and extracted using imagination, design and collective intelligence as a key elements.
- Action Research.
