Tittel

Governing the green shift in Oslo, Gothenburg and Copenhagen through leadership of co-creation (GREENGOV)

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

City municipalities are currently taking the lead in pursuing goals of sustainable, low carbon urban development, referred to here as the “green shift”. However, pursuing the green shift is challenging and calls for a co-creational form of leadership. Cities depend on close collaboration with the state, neighboring municipalities, the business community and citizens to tackle climate transformation. GREENGOV aims to create new and cutting-edge knowledge about opportunities, challenges and dilemmas public leaders face in promoting co-creational leadership for the green shift.

 

The project studies how public leaders cope with these problems, and how their strategies contribute to make cities more green, innovative and sustainable. More specifically, we are interested in how cities can build co-creation arenas that create synergies between institutional layers of hierarchical, market-inspired and collaborative measures.

 

The project addresses the following main research question: Which leadership strategies and mechanisms can effectively support co-creation, learning and innovation in favor of the green shift? We combine conventional transdisciplinary research approaches with City Labs as design experiments. Case studies are undertaken in the cities of Oslo, Gothenburg, Copenhagen and Cape Town.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

GREENGOV aims to create new and cutting edge knowledge about the
challenges and dilemmas public leaders face in governing the green
shift in Oslo, Copenhagen, and Gothenburg. The focus is on political and
administrative leadership in networks and co-creation arenas, and how
leadership affects the outcomes towards sustainable, low carbon cities. A
main hypothesis is that co-creation is facilitated through particular forms of
interactive leadership that facilitates learning and innovation in networks
to address the complex multiscalar and multiactor challenges involved in
promoting the green shift. The main research question is; which leadership
strategies and mechanisms can effectively support co-creation, learning and
innovation in favour of the green shift?


Key governance mechanisms available to political and administrative leaders
to this end will be investigated including their management tools, strategies,
institutional design and choice of governance mechanisms. To this end,
we are interested in how and to what extent cities are capable of creating
synergies between institutional layers of hierarchical, market-inspired and
network measures that represent diverse leadership strategies.
The transdisciplinary research approach is enriched by the use of innovative
CityLabs as design experiments to investigate how different leadership
interventions influence green co-creation. Lessons on leadership and
co-creation will emerge from case-studies and co-creational actions in the
cities. GREENGOV will facilitate additional learning through comparison
of the Scandinavian city cases with examples from Cape Town. This will
provide new insights and learning about co-creational leadership from a
different cinstitutional setting. The empirical findings will lead to policy and institutional design lessons.Theoretical contributions will be provided on
leadership and co-creation theory. The CityLabs will build co-creational
capacity across the cities for a green shift. ​
