At the Centre for Collective Intelligence Design, we create new ways for communities to use technology to harness their ideas and power to act on the problems that matter to them and create the futures they want.
We design tools and projects that allow communities to respond collectively to challenges, and that help public and voluntary sector institutions strengthen trust and collaboration with citizens. We help diverse voices to be heard, and for people with different interests and preferences to find common goals. Our approach helps to build community awareness and collective action on issues that matter – from tackling the climate crisis to living healthy lives.
We work with organisations to help them understand where and how collective intelligence approaches can help address the problems they’re working on. We apply collective intelligence design – which brings together diverse groups of people, with new sources of data and digital technologies – to develop bespoke solutions to those problems. Through the use of rigorous research methods, we also test and evaluate each solution.
Our expertise is grounded in our extensive knowledge of a range of collective intelligence methods and our understanding of which combination is best for a particular problem, as well as a cutting-edge research programme. The Centre’s multidisciplinary team brings skills in participatory methods, research, community mobilisation, data science, design and AI and we have worked with organisations from the UN to the BBC. Our flagship Collective Intelligence Design Playbook helped to define the field and is used by practitioners around the world.
