Copenhagen Legacy Lab offers a carefully designed process, which aims to inspire associations and local stakeholders to develop and commit to activities that leave a lasting, positive and sustainable impact on both the association and destination.

The process

The process follows four main steps:

STEP 1: LEGACY GOAL SETTING
Copenhagen Legacy Lab initially engages association leadership in a reflection on and assesment of the legacy potentials their congress might drive, including defining clear legacy goals and setting up the right evaluation indicators for measuring the impact of legacy activities.
STEP 2: LOCAL STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT
We facilitate the mapping and engagement of the most important and relevant local stakeholders and drive the same process of identifying the strategic aims and goals for the destination as with association leadership. Building on Danish traditions for cross-sectoral partnerships, particular emphasis is placed on securing a broad stakeholder collaboration.
STEP 3: CO-CREATION
The cornerstone of the Copenhagen Legacy Lab process is the facilitation of an ideation workshop, where association leadership and key stakeholders align their respective visions, strategies and legacy goals for the congress and subsequently engage in the co-creation of potential activities to support the desired legacy outcomes.
STEP 4: FOLLOW UP AND IMPLEMENTATION
Copenhagen Legacy Lab will monitor the consolidation and development progress of the agreed upon activities and offer support, counselling and encouragement to all working groups. The main responsibility for implementation rest with the working groups.
