Everything fell into place during Smerdiek Zorgt
Big knowledge database update (and all about an unforgettable co-creation session)
Smerdiek Zorgt. Where to start? Some days everything just falls into place and that was definitely what happened on 10 January during Smerdiek Zorgt regarding public interest, enthusiastic reactions and rounding of the EMPOWERCARE project as a whole.
Recently, we organised a public co-creation session which turned out to be a day filled with moments of recognition, both for us and the participants. It was a momentous occasion we had really been looking forward to. It was more than just sharing experiences; what became clear for all parties involved, was just what can be achieved by sharing experiences (and therefore shared knowledge). Participants had very direct insight into their own contribution to the project as a whole. Or, as participant Martien Luteijn put it into words: “It was truly great to see people realise: ‘I can make a valid and vital contribution to all this’.”
