Co-creation & Community Action Research (CAR)
TCD research is build around the development, testing and evaluation of concrete initiatives. We work with:
Co-analysing the situation
Describing the characteristics of socially vulnerable local communities and neighborhoods
Co-creating and co-implementing sustainable social and health promotion interventions in the local community
Empowering citizens to take ownership of the evaluation of interventions implemented in their own neighborhood
TCD is part of the international research network CAR, initiated by Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen.
CAR stands for Community Action Research and refers to an iterative development process that combines reflection and analysis with action in local communities.
