Abstract

This paper will describe how Förnyelselabbet, a design driven lab, takes on challenging areas that spans across policy, organizational and sectorial boundaries. The paper will give an account of how Förnyelselabbet has set up its co-creation and engagement process. The process is not specifically devised to deliver solutions at a micro level, but to drive change across the welfare system from policy, over new collaborations to specific service interactions. The lab was initiated as a response to the large number of unaccompanied minors that arrived in Sweden around the fall of 2015, based on political insight and a decision by the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs to explore how design could aid user driven innovation within social health care for children and youths.
