This is a six month strategic learning report sharing the findings from a pilot to test the Participatory City Approach in the Connected Communities Department of te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland Council. This is a new approach which provides a support platform for large numbers of residents of a community to engage in participatory co-production: doing everyday things collaboratively to build capacity and social cohesion, and leading to many positive community outcomes.

We have recorded a number of strategic learnings which begin to validate the efficacy of the approach and new insights about how the approach worked in Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland, for instance how Māori engaged positively with the approach.
