Combining Mass Civic Participation and Futures Thinking to Facilitate Meaningful Co-Design of a New 10-Year National Strategy for Volunteering Recognised in Australia’s International Good Design Awards for Excellence in Design and Innovation.
The National Strategy for Volunteering was the culmination of a 12-month co-design process and is a testament to the power of genuine collaboration towards a common goal and Australia’s enduring devotion to volunteering.
Working with ThinkPlace we combined mass civic participation and futures thinking to facilitate meaningful co-design. The process was deeply participatory and aimed to empower individuals and organisations to guide the development of the National Strategy for Volunteering.
