  14. 14. EVIDENCE • Evidence is used at different stages of the project process; • Evidence has been used already in defining the problem, and in thinking about solutions; • Evidence is also used during the process and at the end via monitoring and evaluation; • Here we concentrate on broadening the horizons of evidence in the initial stages of the process. URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 14 Evidence at planning stage Evidence and monitoring during project Evaluation at the end of project
  15. 15. SOURCES OF EVIDENCE You are not alone…You may learn from: • Those who have addressed the same or similar issues • The past: What has been tried before? Why it worked/did not work? • Colleagues in your own city: could it be that similar actions are tried in other city quarters, how to use their lessons? • From service users and citizens: getting feedback and ideas and co-creating? • Other cities: Learning from good practices in other cities, national and abroad? • Science, research and data: Learning from scientific studies about the topic at hand? How to find them, how to “translate” them in a language accessible for policymakers? • Using expertise and any ‘thinking out of the box’: What type of experts would we need? How about inviting ‘unusual suspects’, someone who could really inspire and challenge us URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 15
  16. 16. ’UNUSUAL SUSPECTS’ • Experts or anybody coming from outside the people and organisations we usually use to inform us • In order to help us think out of the box, to have a fresh and critical look on what we are doing • To be challenged and inspired • To find new, creative ways of solving our problems • To broaden our horizons, to enhance our actions and • Get better results URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 16
  17. 17. EXAMPLES OF ’UNUSUALSUSPECTS’ Copenhagen Job Centre: • Hired Anthropologists, using co-creative methods with customers, and made a ’walk through’ and analysis of the whole job centre service process and then together with staff and customers came up with innovations City of Swindon, UK: • Hired voluntary organisation people who lived for weeks with troubled families, in their daily lives, in order to bring the message ’from the inside’ for reforms of services, which were not delivering URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 17
