Together we can turn ideas into reality
Creating together is not a new phenomenon in itself. Co-Creation – often called Design-Thinking or Multi-Stakeholder Approach – is an increasingly popular concept. But since Co-Creation became a new paradigm in recent years, the approach is getting more and more strategic importance based on profound methodology.
Bringing Co-Creation in Civil Society on the ground is not an easy process. Many voices are needed to be heard, and the Co-Creation process is quite complex and exhausting. But when the concept is well thought out, it will significantly increase the organizations' influence.
Let us create values, join hands, and find answers and innovative solutions to tackle the world's complex challenges. Together we can bring ideas to life.
We believe that Civil Societies can innovate much better when collaborating. Through that, synergy effects support the creative process, and the mutual exchange helps to solve seemingly impossible problems.
Civil Society Academy has a profound understanding of co-creation within civil society, and we would love to partner with you. The most important aspect of collaboration is the overall goal: with every project, we are supporting, we are coming global social justice a step closer. Your idea needs to stand for a good cause and create positive change.
Together with other civil society organizations, we have already co-created new products and initiatives with Civil society organizations around the globe. All these projects are now running on their own.
If you would also like to co-create with us, send us an email. We will meet, exchange, explore, and inspire each other. Once we match, we are like-minded and want to create values together; we will partner up and bring our co-creative ideas to life.
The last projects we have brought to life as a team
Focus: Environmental Justice
The Youth Empowerment Academy is a social start-up initiative of Save Cambodia’s Wildlife and the Civil Society Academy. Save Cambodias Wildlife (SWC) is a leading environmental NGO in Cambodia, working towards nature and wildlife habitat protection. Inspiring each other since 2014, SCW and the CSA came up with the idea to launch a “Green Youth Development Program.” Driven by the conviction that an environmentally just future relies on the young generation, whereas at the same time, the needs and challenges of the young age must be considered and addressed, SCW and CSA started to identify lasting solutions. Using the innovative methodology of design-thinking, SCW and CSA developed the YEP-Academy and its first products in 2020. With support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the YEP-Academy was launched in 2021. They strive to become a critical part of the South-East-Asian ecosystem that inspires young people to upshift their talent and make a difference for current and future generations towards environmental justice.
In 2019 Civil Society Academy Co-Created the Community Leadership Program together with the partners Center for Youth and Social Development (CYSD), Professional Assistance for Development Action (PRADAN) and Sahbhagi Shikshan Kendrain (SSK) in India.
The program focused on nurturing the leadership qualities within the community leaders. The target groups of this program were leaders in underprivileged communities, development organizations, and their facilitators.
