- 1. What is this method? Co-designing a vision or a plan for urban nature is an approach to design by actively involving diverse stakeholders into the designing process. This co-design process aims at ensuring that the final plan or vision reflect the needs for the plan (e.g. specific urban sustainability challenge in a particular urban area) and focuses more on the design process and procedure itself, rather than on design style. The stakeholders invited to participate on the co-designing process, interact with new concepts and ideas through prototypes and sketches.
- 2. How should I apply this method? This process can be generally broken into seven main steps: (1) Identification of main challenges, (2) identification of objectives, synergies and conflicts, (3) vision development, (4) vision refinement, (5) consideration of governance, (6) presentation of results and evaluation.
- 3. At what stages of the Urban Nature Index implementation could I apply this method? This method can be used to identify relevant sustainability challenges for a particular urban area, and to develop a strategy or plan for the implementation of nature-based solutions.
