Fostering Local Innovation and Co-Creation

2015 Working Group

Lead PIA Member: Melton Foundation





This group examined co-design as an approach to design products, processes, programs, and business models that sustainably improve the lives of people in poverty at the base of the economic pyramid. As part of its activities, the group developed a common definiton of co-creation and identified a collection of tools and techniques to foster that enabling mindset for effective co-creation.

This group was co-led by MIT D-Lab and the Melton Foundation, and included members from companies Danone, Mars, and Unilever; NGO World Vision International; and social ventures Community Enterprise Solutions and Greenlight Planet.

We invite you to view, use, and share the output of this group:
