It was Sunday and very cold winter day in Aalto University campus area but still around twenty CIVIS members arrived to our Helsinki workshop on 26th of January in 2014.

The goal of the first day was to create use cases for the two pilot sites in Stockholm and Trento. After catching up and having nice lunch together, the workshop participants were divided into two working groups: Stockholm use cases and Trento use cases. Both groups had their own facilitators and creative secretaries. A co-design method called “Storytelling Group” was applied for describing our pilot site end-users, their motivations and possible energy practices enhanced with CIVIS technologies, this was done in a narrative structure.
