Professional certificate: Developing Shared Spaces
The professional certificate “Developing Shared Spaces” aims to encourage the spread of shared spaces by bringing together actors from diverse horizons and varied backgrounds (disciplines, sectors, professional experiences) who are engaged in urban transformation and/or who share in the desire to be at the heart of this evolution. By exchanging and connecting in this collective format, each and every one will have the opportunity to evolve and to deepen their knowledge and know-how. The instructional approach of the course is therefore based on the collective intelligence of a learning community rather than on the teaching of a pre-established curriculum.
The course addresses a wide public: site management team members, professional project managers, actors involved in urban issues, local government agents or members of associations and civil society organizations. The objectives of the certificate are to federate a network of actors who are in favour of a shared city fabric, to create spaces for perspective and reflection on our practices, to instruct in an “open source” manner in order to reinforce the capacities of places and collectives, to participate in encouraging new methods in traditional organizations and finally to contribute to a movement aimed at launching new shared spaces.
The “Shared Spaces” professional certificate is an initiative of Yes We Camp, in partnership with Ancoats, Codesign-It and the University of Paris-Est-Marne-la-Vallée, and supported by the national French Impact Programme. It is issued as a French diplôme universitaire.
