The workshop will be built around a collaborative online platform for serious game development with and for older people, webFitForAll which received the 3rd place at the Best Living Lab Project Award 2016. In its prototype stage, the webFitForAll tool has been built to facilitate co-creation on SGs by involving remotely all the types of stakeholders (Marketing developers, LL practitioners, healthcare professionals, researchers, designers/developers/SMEs, business developers, ageing citizens, etc). The hands-on workshop will invite the participants to form groups representing different stakeholders and work on designing a “Play for …” campaign from the different perspectives. The goal is to invite any interested living lab from the ENoLL healthcare group to run this campaign after the OpenLivingLab days and evaluate this methodology.

The main idea of the workshop is the co-design of a “Play for …” campaign (citizens play and collect points for a goal with social impact), by involving all the stakeholders of SG during the workshop, which will be proposed to be carried out as part of the healthcare living labs group for the following 2 months. Marketing developers, LL practitioners, healthcare professionals, researchers, designers/developers/SMEs, business developers, public sector and ageing citizens (actors of the quadruple helix and end users) will co-create the campaign during the workshop by contributing from different perspectives. As a future step, the campaign will be proposed to run a couple of months after the workshop in order to give time for some hackathons to be conducted in the meantime. The researchers will evaluate the co-creation methodology through the results of the individual campaigns based on what they have designed during the workshop. All the information and methodologies will be consolidated in a research paper that will be presented at the #OLLD2018.
