Get set to be surfing a new wave with us on OpenIDEO! We've just launched a fresh opportunity to collaborate for social good – with our Healthy Ageing Challenge which asks: How might we all maintain wellbeing and thrive as we age? We're especially keen for you to connect with folks you know across different ages and report back via our Inspiration phase – because real insights start with real people, right? We've even prepared a Interview Starter Kit to help you out. Take a look over our collection of Missions to get you started – plenty of avenues to get involved. Needs to tips on how to inspire like a pro? Check out our Lowdown on Inspiration. We'd also like to give a warm welcome to our Healthy Ageing Challenge Community Champion, Annie Lin, who was selected for this volunteer role as part of our ongoing experiment to empower switched-on collaborators from our community.
Be sure to check out this week's Huffington Post piece by our very own Tom Hulme: Harnessing the Wisdom of Your Crowd. This is the first in a series by Tom, which will draw on insights from OpenIDEO's awesome 50,000 collaborators spread across 160 countries.
On the impact front we also have exciting news. Catch another action update from the Voting Challenge: Prototyping for Election Accessibility, Part 2. And let's hear it for Amnesty International and the OpenIDEO collaborators who contributed to the Panic Button App idea! With a generous grant from Google, it's set to become a reality to support human rights.
