This chapter explores the reasons why the innovation processes, in particular in software engineering, become more and more open and participative; and the implications on the sustainability of future software-intensive systems. The chapter then goes deeper in understanding participation, and the collaborative creativity processes that lie behind it, towards an understanding of the conditions under which participation may lead to more sustainability. The case of open source software is analysed as an illustration and finally suggests novel participative and requirements-oriented techniques to support the design of sustainable systems.
