KEYWORDS : agile, codesign, codetermination, design, interactive design, participatory democracy, utopia

ABSTRACT : This article is intended to present cooperative design, also known as participatory design or codesign. It discusses the issue of creative participation in a democratic regime and adopts a relationist and communicational approach typical of codesign and empathic design. This article also pays tribute to the founders of UTOPIA who initiated the first experiments of cooperative design in the graphic industry upset by the arrival of computer devices. Based on a long expertise in the design of digital artefacts, this article ends with a series of recommendations articulated in thirteen phases intended to favor codesign, and with the integration of those recommendations in the AGILE method of project management.
