Bringing folks together via pop-ups in NYC, thanks to an idea which has evolved from our Vibrant Cities challenge. Read more about where it's heading.


It's all about agile moves on OpenIDEO this week, as our Healthy Ageing Challenge shortlisters refine their ideas with the help of our global community. Folks are prototyping and eliciting feedback from seniors and iterating their concepts in a frenzy of iterative goodness. Conversations are emerging around the need to nurture trust and potentials for partnership. There's plenty of chances for everyone to get involved including lots of tips on our Lowdown for Refinement alongside some helpful pointers from the Mayo Clinic. There's also this week's Community Champion update from Annie – with some team talk to get us all collaborating.

The Huffington Post has featured two OpenIDEO collaborators who discuss their winning Atrocity Prevention ideas and how the ride's been on OpenIDEO. Check out Thread: Connecting the World and People's Radio: Tried & True Technology Meets New innovation to find out more.

And because we know you're all fans of collaboration and social impact, we're excited to share the latest update which has evolved and expanded from our Vibrant Cities Challenge. Power to the Pop-up shares the impressive achievements of an inspiring initiative which is engaging New Yorkers through underused storefronts. How are you going to become a social good action agent in your community?
