Our Atrocity Prevention Challenge is bolting through it's second week with a a diverse range of insights and inspirations being added to the mix to fuel our upcoming Ideas phase. There's still time for us to explore the topic further and this week we're featuring two new missions to help with our collective exploration. Our Crisis Prevention Mission asks you to search for tools, techniques and approaches which have been effective in the past. There may also be learnings from disaster response and prevention. Our Exploring Access Mission asks you to reflect on living, working or travelling in remote or hard-to-access areas. We're keen to hear how people share information in unexpected ways in these contexts. Let's think broadly about our challenge topic – this'll enrich the ideas and ideating ahead.
Did you catch our recent OpenIDEO survey results? We asked, you answered. As the stars of our platform, we're keen to learn more about who you what your favourite parts of OpenIDEO are on a regular basis. Delve into the insights and watch for upcoming developments as we use this info to iterate OpenIDEO in our always-in-beta style. Also check out our very own Nathan Waterhouse in the Guardian with 9 Ways Business Can Improve Health in the Workplace and Beyond.
And don't miss our latest Featured Ideator: Ashley Elmblad – a Colorado-based people support analyst switched on to design thinking. Her take on OpenIDEO: "… a breeding ground for wild, divergent, impact-focused creativity. It’s fun. It’s compelling. It’s playful. It’s significant. It’s down right awesome." Sounds like good reasons to spread the word and get involved!
