Methodology of Storytelling Workshops
“This deliverable describes the approach for the Storytelling workshops and reports on the results of the first workshop in Vienna in April 2019. The workshop was planned back-to-back with the PED (Positive Energy District) City Workshop & Study Visit organised by JPI Urban Europe (3-4 April 2019, Vienna), which was a good continuation of the +CityxChange partners’ own PED development efforts. This is described in more detail in D9.1: Framework for intra-project collaboration as well as D9.2: Report on Intra-Project Collaboration, Including Study Visits and Peer to Peer Workshops. The workshop led to the completion of Milestone MS14: First clustering event. Additionally, the deliverable details the approach and objectives for the second workshop in Limerick in October 2019 as well as a short summary. The extensive workshop outcomes will be reported on in the subsequent deliverable in month 24.
The workshops are an integral part of the knowledge development and exchange in- and outside the +CityxChange project and are embedded in the Work Package 9 – Intra-Project Collaboration and Clustering. The deliverable is contributing to Task 9.3: Extra-Project Cooperation with existing LHCs and FCs through clustering events run by +CityxChange consortium, focusing on the exchange with other Lighthouse and Follower Cities. Led by ISOCARP, the Storytelling Workshops are jointly organised with the Work Package Lead, NTNU, as well as the +CityxChange cities. To ensure an active exchange with other stakeholders and SCC-01 projects, representatives of the projects are invited to the workshops.
The deliverable is the first of five annual reports on storytelling workshops and will report on a total of ten workshops which will be carried out bi-annually over the course of the project. The workshops are organised as part of the yearly consortium meetings and intermediary Learning Workshops. The third Storytelling workshop will take place in Písek in Spring 2020, followed by one during the third consortium meeting in autumn 2020.”
