The A-Z of Co-Design: A brief introduction to participatory design

Published in July 2016 as a folding wallchart, this practical, bite-sized guide to participatory design combines insights from our own co-design activities with those of experts from a range of other fields. Endorsed and distributed by the Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE), it is currently being developed into a desk calendar for 2018 (in English, French and Spanish) and forms the basis of a professional training programme delivered jointly with CAE.

Mobility. Mood. Place.
Intergenerational co-design for age-friendly places

Published in May 2017, this is a beautifully illustrated, 32-page guide to the 13 key things we have uncovered through the co-design process about older people’s needs and preferences for age-friendly environments. The publication features a range of annotated designs for the cities of London, Manchester and Copenhagen and the Scottish islands of Orkney produced by students at Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with local older people.
