Now and Then: Co-Designing Systems Smart Enough for the Future

Author: Matthew Hollingshead and Josina Vink

What happens when a diverse group of community stakeholders collaborate to design systems change aimed at shifting legacy health and social systems toward becoming people-powered supports that learn and adapt? This presentation uses the case example of the Northwest Toronto Service Collaborative, a cross-sectoral partnership between service providers, youth, and families to implement systems change aimed at improving the appropriateness of supports for children and youth with mental health and addictions needs in Northwest Toronto. Grounded in this example, presenters will explore the emerging practices of co-design at a systems-level, creating cross-sectoral design communities, designing systems with adaptive capacity, and moving beyond sustainability toward emergence.
