The increasing number of extreme weather events and the rapid changing environment in an unstable climate present critical challenges for communities across the world. Citizens’ Observatories (COs) present an unprecedented opportunity to design new socio-technical innovations in which citizens can not only uptake, but also co-design and shape their development. We present a novel gamified card tool tested with multi-stakeholder audiences including service designers, policy-makers, citizens, scientists. Theoretical and methodological insights from the development, testing and outcomes are presented across three dimensions: a) Quality of innovative propositions b) Value of transdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder approaches c) Potential for citizen observatories’ sustainability.
