European public space co-creation labs
A coalition of journalists, researchers, policy makers, concerned citizens and media makers gathered for three days to debate and participate in working sessions exploring challenges, needs and opportunities for an inclusive and sustainable European public space. The Co-Creation Labs aimed to strengthen the European movement for media and digital space based on public values; improving storytelling and identifying shared advocacy goals; developing collaboration models and identifying technical building blocks for their infrastructure. The Co-Creation Labs was a space for participants to freely meet, collaborate and exchange ideas, learnings and ways of doing based on openness, trust, and peer-to-peer values.
Throughout three sessions, participants had the opportunity to join and contribute to conversations and to the production of tangible outputs related to media collaboration tools, digital infrastructures, inclusive storytelling, media policy making and advocacy, among others. The Co-Creation Labs were a space for open networking and getting to know each other’s practises; to identify specific collective needs and how participants can feed and support on others practises; and to collectively develop tangible outputs designed to explore possible sustainable relations in the movement for a value-based European public space from different areas.
