The Lisbon Living Lab works towards enhancing functional relations between rural and urban areas through co-creation, learning and innovation. The meeting with stakeholders was part of the envisioning phase of its work. Organised as a workshop, it involved diverse local stakeholders and was focused on the co-creation of a vision for the LMA. Using various techniques of participatory co-design, the organisers aimed to facilitate participants' open innovation and critical thinking in order to better understand rural-urban relations.
During the session, the Lab’s vision was validated and further explored, and the results of the exercises showed a clear alignment with its Research & Innovation Agenda, which gave the Lab extra motivation to move on to the next phase and experiment.
