This presentation describes how the Wheel of Co-creation brings together business, civil society and entrepreneurs, to identify and integrate transcendent innovations and projects.
The process creates a platform that integrates citizens and businesses to work together in order to strengthen their selected projects and make them a reality.

Presented at the World Future Society Conference, Orlando, FL, July 11-14, 2004
