Co-design and urban resilience: visioning tools for commoning resilience practices: CoDesign: Vol 0, No 0

Introduction Positing that ‘commoning’ resilience practices is a necessary step in the process of achieving greater urban resilience; this paper introduces a co-design process, aimed at defining a set of digital tools that could enable connectivity and exchanges between presently dispersed resilience initiatives. In order to identify potential tools, the co-design process involves potential users (i.e. practitioners and communities who have a key role in driving such initiatives) in defining the types of local knowledge produced and the kinds of capacities needed in order to advance their resilience practices. Furthermore, we argue that co-designing tools with some of those for whom they are intended (potential users) and allowing the process to be open and replicable are key to ensuring the continuity and expansion of the commoning process beyond this project, our involvement as researchers and designers and the initial user base. 2.
